Bordeaux de Gloria
Francois' French Opinion: Famous Chateau Gloria is under the domain of Martin that is a collection of 5 chateaus representing 128 acres located in Saint Julien in the Haut Medoc region of Bordeaux. Chateau Bordeaux desire was to create an approachable bordeaux, where the tannins are soft, and the fruits are aromatic. This the second growth of the prestigious Chateau Gloria. You will find a few notes of acidity, reminding us of its youth. Bordeaux de gloria is your best option to taste a Bordeaux wine without breaking the bank. This well awarded wine will age nicely and increase in value of the next 5 years (if you manage to leave it corked that long).
