ABOUT THE WINE
One of the better-known Crus Bourgeois of the Medoc, still at reasonable prices. Chateau Gloria is made up of holdings of classified Crus and would deserve to be classified in its own right. Recent vintages have found all their character again, in the tradition of the great Saint-Julien wines. A surprising wine if you are prepared to wait: after 30 years, the 1970 vintage has just reached optimum maturity.

TASTING NOTES
Abundant amounts of liquorice, smoke, herbs, cherries, and currants emerge from this deep ruby/purple-tinged, full-bodied, up-front, flamboyant 2002. It relies more on fruit and terroir than new oak to seduce the taster. Surprisingly supple and fleshy for the vintage, it is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next decade.

FOOD PAIRING
Beef, lamb, spicy food, poultry, game (deer, venison)

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A surprising wine if you are prepared to wait.
