TASTING NOTES : Château Glana produces an elegant and deep Saint-Julien. The bouquet displays mocha, blackberry and blackcurrant. The palate is full and after aging for a few years, the tannins' quality is remarkable.
ROBERT PARKER Wine Adovcate - 90 Points : Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 du Glana is scented of black currants, black berries and mulberries with touches of beef, cigar box and menthol. The palate is medium to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and a good fruit core, finishing long. (LPB) 90+ 93 points Decanter
Outer quote mark One of the few non-1855-classified estates in St-Julien, one that has plenty of the elegant balanced signature of the appellation at relatively affordable prices. This has plum and cassis fruits, soft floral edging and integrated oak. Very enjoyable. Drinking Window 2020 - 2032. (JA) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

90 points James Suckling
Outer quote mark The full black-fruit aromas make this generous and well-rounded wine with rather gentle tannins easy to enjoy now. The finish is very supple and with clearer contors, this would rate even more highly. Inner quote mark (2/2018)
Outer quote mark Offers good typicity, with a cassis and butter plum core lined with light iron and charcoal notes. Ends with a touch of pleasant austerity through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. (JM, Web Only-2018)
ABOUT THE WINERY : Château du Glana is on the wine route that runs along the Gironde estuary, between Beychevelle and St Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. The extreme care given to the vineyard and during vinification has contributed to this wine's reputation, which was classified a cru bourgeois exceptionnel in 1977.
ABOUT TERROIR : With 59 hectares of vines nearly in a single block, Château du Glana is located in the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation, consisting of 90% great growths. An average of 25 years old, the vines grow on Garonne gravel with a density of 7,000 vines per hectare. The typical Médoc grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon (65 %), gives the wine structure and ageing potential, whereas Merlot (35 %) provides roundness and body.
ABOUT CHATEAU DU GLANA HISTORY : Château Du Glana is located on the Route des Grands Vins running parallel to the Gironde estuary, between the towns of Beychevelle and Saint-Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. Château Du Glana was constructed in 1870 by Mr Nadeau, the city of Blaye's architect, for Mr Cayx. At about this time, a small (5 hectares) vineyard of gravelly soil was consolidated thanks to the purchase of several plots of land from neighbouring Château Saint-Pierre. After several other owners, Mr Gabriel Meffre bought Château Du Glana in 1961. He increased the vineyard to 43 hectares in the following years by acquiring several plots belonging to third growth Château Lagrange. Helped by his young sons Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. They are motivated by a major ambition: to achieve the estate's full potential.
Surrounded by some of finest great growths in the Médoc, Château Du Glana has made tremendous strides in quality since 1999. Much thought has gone into making improvements over the past several years and the vineyard has been entirely renovated. Château Du Glana produces modern elegant wines of character reflecting the estate's superb terroir. The estate's completely restored buildings (vat room, grape reception area, ageing cellar, offices, and reception room), the immense care taken in the vineyard, and precious winemaking advice from Professor Denis Dubourdieu provide a sound equilibrium between modern methods and respect for tradition. Château Du Glana is thus a well-balanced, velvety, and complex wine enjoyable young, but also with excellent.
