Henri Martin, mayor of Saint-Julien, created Château Gloria in the late 1940s from vineyards he bought from the prestigious châteaux of Léoville Poyferré, Gruaud Larose and Saint Pierre. As a consequence, Château Gloria’s wines remain without their proper status, while each vintage they surpass many of the classified growths. After Henri's death in 1991, his son-in-law Jean-Louis Triaud has continued the family tradition of exemplary winemaking, receiving high marks each vintage from critics worldwide. James Suckling described it as having, "A linear and very fine wine with blackberry, blueberry and currant character. Hints of cedar and stone", while Wine Advocate called it "rich and fleshy". A wine that will benefit from cellaring.

"Rich and fleshy, with a succulent, enveloping core of fruit and supple tannins, it's a gourmand" William Kelley
