An excellent effort, the 2011 Gloria continues the success this well-known property has enjoyed over the last several decades. A delicious concoction of red and black fruits, spice box, and earth as well as a silky textured, medium-bodied style emerge from this is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. The round tannins, delicious fruit and forward character suggest it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot picked between 15th to 29th September and aged in 40% new oak, the Gloria 2011 has an intense bouquet of red and black fruit mixed with a ferrous scent that emerges only with 5-7 minutes aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. It is a little pinched at the moment although it should blossom during its élevage as there is certainly good substance on the linear finish that exhibits a gentle grip. Fine. Tasted April 2012.

Light cherry-linctus sweetness. Light floral note. Gently and attractively fragrant. There's some chew here and fruit to hold the middle ground. Showing so much better balance than the Haut-Médocs just tasted. Juicy and polished. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Fine, streamlined and very classic. No great surprises is it an archetypal Glora: juicy and elegant. Will be drinking beautifully in 10-ish years.
