Cru Bourgeois

Château Gloria, Cru Bourgeois, 2010

RRP £51.14

A superb value Saint-Julien, outperforming its cru bourgeois classification in 2010 as in 2009. There’s a medley of sweet fruit on the nose: strawberry, apples, rhubarb and pear, then an intriguing note of miso. The aroma suggestions are endless, flitting from one to the next – switching and changing as you get lost in the bouquet; totally one of a kind. On the palate it is bright and exuberant, with lifted, fresh spring flowers and pert fruit. The wine is not without its heft of tannic grip towards the finish. All in all, quite a remarkably singular style, with a rhubarb and custard finish.
