In a Vinous report released this morning, Neal Martin awarded Gloria 2019 a range of 93-95 points. Martin said that “this is a nimble Saint-Julien, athletic in build with a sapid finish that urges you back for another sip. Excellent”. The wine received the same score from Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider).
James Suckling also reviewed the wine, giving it 94-95 points, and noting that it is “full-bodied and very structured. Better than the 2018”.
The 2019 compares favorably to the 2016 in both score and price.
