    Score: 93-94

    Just 4.5 ha in the middle of Pomerol, Hosanna’s gravel and clay soils are perfectly suited to growing superb quality Merlot. Strong aromas of dark fruits with hints of liquorice and dark toffee. A generous and opulent wine, with a lovely richness of sweet spiced dark fruits. The tannins have a full but silky texture and the lasting sensation is one of sweetness and ripe fruit.

    Neal Martin, April 2018,
    Score: 94-96

    The 2017 Hosanna has a sophisticated and quite beguiling bouquet that continues what I feel is a more cerebral take on the vineyard, earlier vintages being a little too ostentatious for my liking. This exudes panache and the oak here is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, enormous depth, harmonious and silky smooth in texture to the point where you almost overlook the power towards the finish. There is something ambitious about this Hosanna and it will surely age tremendously over the next 20 years. This vies with Trotanoy as one of the most enticing offerings from J-P Moueix this year. 2023 - 2048

    Antonio Galloni, April 2018,
    Score: 91-94

    The 2017 Hosanna is a big, deep wine, as it often is, and yet it also comes across as more delicate and translucent than is typically the case. Plush contours and silky tannins add to the wine's racy, voluptuous feel. In two separate tastings Hosanna was quite subdued, but that is not necessarily a bad thing for this typically exuberant, bold Pomerol. Hosanna is always a soloist, never an orchestra.

    Wine Advocate, April 2018,
    Score: 96-98

    A final blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Hosanna is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose that simply sings of violets, chocolate-covered cherries and exotic spices with a core of crème de cassis, fragrant earth and blueberry pie plus a waft of wild thyme. The palate is medium to full-bodied, velvety, rich and seductive with tons of black and blue fruit layers, finishing with those exotic spices coming through.

    James Suckling, April 2018,
    Score: 95-96

    This shows a very long finish with pretty fruit and sophisticated tannins. Chewy and exciting.

    Matthew Jukes, April 2018,
    Score: 17++?

    In 2017 Hosanna shows a very strict nose, palate and finish and all of these elements are seemingly controlled by the acidity. I rarely sense that this is an austere wine, but the dominant oak and straightjacketed fruit are at the mercy of the brutal acid on the finish and this rebounds and washes back over the palate. There is fruit here and it seems to be sweet and pure, but it is enslaved by the more structural elements in this wine and I don’t think it will find a way of escaping.

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, April 2018,
    Score: 17

    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. (JH) Drink 2024-2032

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
