Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 2021 Gloria is the first vintage where the vineyard farming has moved
to organic viticulture (though there are no plans for certification.) It was
picked from September 27 to October 9, stopping for 5 days between the
Merlot and Cabernets, with a large percentage (14%) of Petit Verdot from a
massal selection. It has a very pure and perfumed nose thanks to the
contribution of the Petit Verdot. The palate is medium-bodied and quite
dense for the vintage, displaying fine body and weight, gentle grip and a
touch of graphite toward the finish. Very fine.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 90-92/100
Charming and extroverted, the 2021 Gloria bursts with aromas of cassis, cherries, sweet berries, fresh mint and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it’s a lively, seamless wine that wears its heart on its sleeve. This blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 14% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc seems likely to emerge as a sleeper of the vintage. Tasted four times.
