A Robert Parker quote on the magnificent 2009 Bordeaux vintage:-

“2009 is the greatest vintage I have tasted in Bordeaux since 1982,of which it is a modern-day version,but greatly improved”.

"Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London.This may be the finest Gloria ever made.I love the purity and minerality on the nose of this Gloria: so expressive and vibrant,immense clarity and precision.The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins,suave and sophisticated with a wonderful composed,precise finish that lingers long in the mouth.Top Class.Tasted,October 2011".
(95 Points).

Neal Martin. ( December 2011).

"Rich and decadent on the nose,with exotic fruits,spices and incense.Full-body,with so much wonderful chocolate,fruit,and velvety tannins.It's a joy to taste now,but will give even more pleasure in the years to come.Best ever from here and one of the best values of the vintage.Try after 2018".
(94 Points).

James Suckling. (February 2012).

"Gloria has long been one of the most popular wines in America,but I do not believe they have ever made better wines than they have over the last decade,and the 2009 is one of their finest.While the estate is not a classified growth,it certainly performed like one in 2009.A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by an expressive,flamboyant bouquet of black fruits,Christmas spices,licorice,and roasted Provencal herbs.Fuller-bodied,more concentrated and extracted than most vintages with soft tannins,its low acidity and a sumptuous,plump style remind me of a modern day version of the 1982 (which is fully mature but still in great shape).The 2009 Gloria is a very smart purchase for those looking to maximize their buying power.In fact,this may be the value of the vintage".
(93 Points).

Robert Parker. (The Wine Advocate. #199. March 2012).
