Château Hosanna

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.7

The 2019 Hosanna is a Pomerol that demands, and deserves, attention. It sprints out of the blocks with intense blackberry, raspberry, incense and blood orange scents, lavish and luxuriant while retaining superb delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, multilayered and mouth-filling, delivering saturated tannins and pure black fruit; just a very faint suggestion of fresh prune and fig appears toward the finish. This Hosanna takes it to the brink of overripeness. A Pomerol blessed with what you might call "optimal hedonism." (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2022)

Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.7

The 2019 La Fleur-Pétrus has an entrancing bouquet that demands your attention, delivering a mixture of red and black fruit, licorice, fresh fig and potpourri. The oak here is beautifully integrated. The palate is very harmonious, with ripe, succulent tannins that frame the concentrated black cherry and red plum fruit, and a dash of white pepper and sage, fanning out wonderfully toward the finish. It’s almost like a slightly toned-down version of the Hosanna. This exceeds my expectations. A brilliant Pomerol. (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2022)

Despite the fill level, which was down into the shoulder, this was drinking exceptionally well. Tannins resolved, but plenty of fruit remaining to contrast with the many earthy components. Has an old Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant sticker on the back. He hasn't steered me wrong yet. Now known as Chateau Hosanna. — 6 years ago

One the nose; floral, sweet fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, plum, black plum, black raspberries & raspberries. Dry, dark soils and dry & fresh red florals. The body is medium. Tannins are dusty, soft and smooth. Black tea, dry stones, crushed dry rocks, cedar wood shavings, dry stems, touch of vanilla, old, dry leather and blue fruits shine as you sip it. This is another tight bottle. It also needs 15 years before it starts to fully reveal itself. The structure, length, balance and acidity are certainly all there for a nicely improved vine in 15 plus years. Photo tour of the estate, Dominus vines, barrel room and of course, the legendary Christian Moueix. He also makes Petrus & Hosanna in Bordeaux. I've been fortunate to have dinner twice with Christian. He is an incredibly nice person and very humble man considering his credentials. First vintage of Dominus 1983. George Yount, for whom Yountville is named, planted some of the first vines on the estate in 1828. — 5 years ago
