2000 Gloria, St-Julien

SKU #1004615 94 points Jane Anson

Outer quote mark Right off the bat this is a beautiful 2000 that has generosity, and is beginning to soften after a long slow rise. Warming and spicy, with enticing notes of black truffles, leather, undergrowth, campfire smoke and gently brambled fruit. There is still focus and structure here, acidity relatively marked, giving emphasis on eucalyptus and mint leaf. A perfect moment to drink, and this is just balanced and effortless, capturing the spirit of St Julien with a little bottle age. Feels on the plateau, not in the ascent, with spice and herbs more evident than fruit at this stage, but full of charm. 40% new oak, with harvest beginning on September 25. First year with Remi di Constanzo as technical director, coming over from Château Cos d'Estournel. Inner quote mark (11/2022)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is really delicious, with a core of juicy blueberry, blackberry and plum fruit flavors layered with singed juniper, tobacco leaf and bittersweet cocoa notes. The lovely interplay between sweet and savory continues through the finish, which has a long, graceful sanguine echo. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The wine improved from the minute it was decanted, showing a full and velvety palate with soft textured tannins and wet earth and minerals with plum flavors. There were some dried herbs too. It was round and delicious. Inner quote mark (8/2013)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This beautiful Bordeaux fruit bomb offers abundant notes of black currants, herbs, cherries, cedar, and spice box. Fleshy and medium to full-bodied with no hard edges, the 2000 Gloria is a total thrill to consume. Inner quote mark (6/2010)
