Extremely Limited!
"What a gorgeous and supple young wine." James Suckling

In stock!

This is not a pre-sale, but rather, the last of the stash!

We have a limited amount of the 2015 Chateau Gloria, the #63 Wine Spectator Top 100 wine of 2018.

"Well-steeped plum, fig and boysenberry fruit is richly layered, supported by embedded brambly grip and backed by waves of ganache and sweet tobacco on the finish." Wine Spectator

"What a gorgeous and supple young wine with ultra-fine tannins and vivid acidity. Medium to full body and direct and driven tannins. Shows such beauty. Better in 2020 but already beautiful." James Suckling

What do we love about this wine?

From a sensational (and warm vintage), you get youthful approachability in a wine that would typically require decades to mature. Ripe, lush, opulent fruit features black currants, blackberry, dark cherry, dried herbs, chocolate and earth. Great structure, well-balanced acidity. This is a knockout from the Cabernet-centric Bordeaux subregion of Saint Julien.

Decant now or cellar for up to 20 years. You will thank yourself for adding this wine to your collection.

While supplies last. First come, first served.

$64.95 per bottle / $779.40 per case
