Wine Advocate (Neal Martin): 89-91 Punkte
The Château Gloria 2014 has a focused, straight-laced bouquet with strict redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit, tightly wound at first but opening with aeration, tobacco and even flint emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, dry tannin, a little chalkiness under those broody black fruit, the foundation of a classic, almost austere finish the nevertheless offers length and sustain. This actually harks back to the fine old Gloria's of the past, a little rustic perhaps, but a wine that I think will blossom in bottle. This will need to prove itself in bottle.
Decanter: 16,75/20 Punkte (89/100 Punkte)
Exuberant, spicy black fruits – rich and ripe with a hint of leather. Has vigour and depth, will open up soon but last well.
Wine Spectator: 89-92 Punkte
Gutsy and slightly chunky, but a fun, mouthfilling style nonetheless, with lots of bramble and briar patch notes around the core of dark plum and blueberry fruit. Shows ample tar on the finish. Shy on refinement, but solidly built.—J.M.
