Tasting Notes:

Chateau Hosanna 2017 is much better with at least 8-12 years of ageing in good vintages when it is ready to be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for 2-3 hours or more. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Chateau Hosanna is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

  • Colour: Smoke, truffle, licorice, espresso and perfectly ripe black cherries create the nose. Full bodied and concentrated with layers of sensuous, ripe, deep, dark red fruits and chocolate coat your palate.
  • Nose: Spicy black raspberry liqueur on the nose, this wine is soft, polished and silky, finishing with a ripe, fresh-picked dark cherry and chocolate note.
  • Finish: Everything is wrapped up with velvet textured tannins. Give this a decade in the cellar and this will be a beauty. But it’s when you return to the lusciously textured fruit on the palate that you say wow, take another sniff and sip and know this is rockin’!

Description

Chateau Hosanna 2017

Chateau Hosanna 2017, a jewel-like vineyard of just 4.5 hectares, is located in the heart of Pomerol’s central plateau, adjacent to some of the most illustrious crus of the appellation: Château Lafleur to the north; Château Petrus to the east; Château La Fleur-Pétrus to the west; Vieux Château Certan to the south.

The vineyard of Château Hosanna has a long and rich history. Prior to its purchase by Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1999, Hosanna was known as Château Certan Giraud, considered one of the premier crus of Pomerol since the 1950’s. It was originally part of the de May family estate, who settled on Pomerol’s plateau in the 16th century and planted one of the appellation’s first vineyards there.

Only the highest plateau parcels of its previous incarnation were selected to form Château Hosanna. The vineyard enjoys a terroir of red gravel and clay on “crasse de fer” which is known for producing wines of great elegance, complexity, and power. Old Cabernet Franc vines, a significant portion of which date back to 1956, contribute a unique complexity to the cru.

A marriage of intensity, purity and balance, its silky touch has led some to describe Hosanna as the feminine counterpart to Trotanoy.

Chateau Hosanna does not have a long history in the Pomerol appellation. Until quite recently, the vineyard was used to produce wines previously sold under the name of Chateau Certan Giraud.

In the estates formative years, the vines were part of the vast de May estate which gave birth to Vieux Chateau Certan, Certan de May and the aforementioned Chateau Certan Giraud and other properties.

The 4.45 hectare Pomerol vineyard of Hosanna is planted to 70% Merlot, much of which was planted during the 1950’s and 30% Cabernet Franc, with vines dating back to the 1970’s. Many of the Cabernet Franc vines are old at close to 40 years of age.

The terroir is gravel with red clay soils. The vineyard is on the top of the famous Pomerol plateau. The property is located close to Vieux Chateau Certan and Certan de May and not far from Petrus on the famous Pomerol plateau.
