Chateau Gloria 2001

88 points

St Julien, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%

This bottle seems a bit prematurely aged, which might be explained by the fact that it was bought off retail shelves this week.

It’s a solid wine, yet slightly dilute (as some 2001 are).  Mocha style oak is a bit over used.  Otherwise nice weight, a touch of minerality.
