Chateau Gloria Domainese Martin 2009, Saint Julien France 

My Rating 91 Points.

Price $65.

 

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim. Showing youth.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, cherries, plums, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, smoke, crushed Aspirin, eucalyptus, earth, alcohol, pencil lead, cola, peppercorn and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and faint legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, raspberries, red currants, licorice, earth, spices, light barnyard, wood, peppercorn, light vanilla, leather, light green vegetables, herbs and chocolates.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

A great Left Bank Bordeaux, but still young. Not fully balanced, but very enjoyable by itself or with food. A Good sipping wine and elegant with nice complexity.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly (Not pleasant out of the bottle).

I wish we didn’t open it now, and waited a few more years… Still I really enjoyed it.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
