Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Hosanna is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and sashays out of the glass with beautiful red rose and violets scents over a core of baked blueberries, mulberries and plum preserves plus wafts of vanilla pod and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed full of perfumed black and blue fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and fragrant. (LPB) 97+
Very attractive aromas of violets, purple cherries and plums with notes of chocolate, cedar and baking spices. The palate has a fullish feel with very concentrated, ripe dark plums, wrapped in super long, silky tannins. Quite a deep, flavorful finish, holding long and fresh.
The 2017 Hosanna was one of my favourite crus from Ets J-P Moueix from barrel. Now in bottle, it remains a delightful Pomerol. It has a generous and beautifully defined bouquet with ample red cherry, crushed strawberry and light black truffle aromas that are actually reminiscent of Bélair-Monange. The palate is medium-bodied but denser, thicker than its peers. There is real substance to this Hosanna that puts the relatively lightweight Certan-de-May in its place. It shows good grip with a saline finish. This is a deeply impressive Hosanna. Rejoice! (NM)
The 2017 Chateau Hosanna is a wonderful wine in the vintage, offering more pleasure and sexiness than most out there. Based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it sports a deep ruby/purple hue to go with fabulous notes of creme de cassis, black raspberries, crushed flowers, Asian spices, and incense. With a kiss of background oak, medium to full body, a silky texture, and stunning length, it's a classic, flawlessly balanced Pomerol to enjoy over the coming two decades.
This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc has a satisfyingly rich and perfumed character. It is dense both with tannins and black fruits, ripe and with enough concentration to promise good aging. (RV)
No frost and an early-budding year allowed the fruit to ripen well on this 4.5ha clay and gravel estate. The coolish but dry summer still translates into fruit character that is powerful rather than exuberant, but it's well handled and extremely enjoyable, restrained but rather beautiful. The tight tannins will need a good six years before drinking. (JA)
Caressing in feel, with hints of ganache and incense draped over a core of warmed plum and cassis flavors. The tobacco-infused finish features good flesh and length. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM)
Deepest crimson. Plenty of dark fruit but also a very slight herbaceous note, not unripe. Lots of finesse in the tannins here, real elegance, quite light on the mid palate but all in balance. 17/20 points. (JH)
