Surprise of the evening; immediate impressions of mature cedar with elegant deep balance as typically seen only in Las Cases and other best St Julien examples. After 3 hours in a decanter continuing to improve, with long mouth-watering aftertaste. An overall impression of an aged but still developing wine, with earth, peat, slight hints of manure. Being not the best year makes it yet more impressive and will be looking for more years of Gloria to compare. Until 2025 at least.
