Château Hosanna, immediately adjacent to Château Pétrus, is planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Christian Moueix believes that this combination makes a more feminine, approachable wine than Pétrus, which is almost 100% Merlot. Moueix's family has a long and storied relation to the broader region surrounding Hosanna and Pétrus. Château Hosanna has a significant amount of 40-year old Cabernet Franc vines which are planted on 30% of the vineyard. Chateau Hosanna is produced from the best fruit and oldest vines found in the vineyard
and is one of the top, new Pomerol properties.
Chateau Hosanna 2001
“A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this is the Cheval Blanc of Pomerol. A wine of admirable complexity, elegance, and purity, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as wonderful notes of blueberries, mint, acacia flowers, espresso, and white chocolate. Opulent, rich, and pure, with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, and wood, it is a beautiful offering that is not far off the pace of the exceptional 2000. Sadly, there are only about 1,000 cases of this offering produced from the finest parcels of old vines carved from the vineyard previously known as Certan-Giraud. Kudos to proprietor Christian Moueix. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2014.” – Rated 93, Robert Parker.
