Henri Martin - the owner of Chateau Gloria, a famous mayor of San Julian and Grand Master of the Order of medokskogo Commanderie du Bontemps - was one of the legendary people Medoc. He gathered estate Gloria "from pieces of" land purchased from neighboring cru classe, and created a burgundy very decent quality, which is not kept in 225-liter barriques, and in 7000 liter barrels, so has less pronounced oak shade than wine neighbors but - very generous fruitiness. His fault, of course, always intended for a wide range of consumers. They were round, generous and very mature, with a wonderful cedar, spicy, almost grotesque bouquet. Under the direction of his son-in-Jean-Louis Trio, nothing has changed radically. Wine is surprisingly good look young, but can develop 12-15 years. Chateau Gloria style of the 1960s and early 1970s has changed since the mid-1970s. Gloria's 1978-1993 vintages wines seem lighter, fruity and less tannic than wines produced earlier. However vintages 2000, 1996 and 1995 were much meaty and rich, being perhaps the harbingers of a return to the style of "before 1978". Wine Chateau Gloria any style are delightfully fluffy and delicious. Production volume Chateau Gloria - 200,000 bottles.
