Winemaker's Notes

Château HOSANNA marries elegance and depth and could become, thanks to the delicate touch of the Cabernet Franc, a feminine counterpart to Château PETRUS.

Critical Acclaim

"Possibly as remarkable as both the 2009 and 2010, the 2008 Hosanna is one of the superstars of the vintage. Its dense plum/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of spring flowers, black currants, boysenberries, white chocolate and forest floor. This irresistible, opulent, textured, fleshy 2008 should continue to drink well for 15-20+ years. don't miss it!"
95 Points

" Austere wine, its tannins pushing forward to give power and structure. It is dense, concentrated, with layer upon layer of bitter coffee and dark fruit flavors, acidity and sweet tannins."
93 Points

"Bright, full ruby. Enticing aromas of raspberry, black cherry, meat and spices, complicated by fresh minerality. Suave and stylish, with a lush texture and very rich, deep flavors of dark fruits and chocolate lifted by an intense floral component. Persistent and perfumed on the very long, smooth finish. A large-scaled Hosanna with outstanding potential.
Rating: 92(+?)"
93 Points

"Fig, clove and tobacco flavors are dark and alluring in this muscular red, which has a thick, muscular texture, but a core of plum and currant fruit keeps it all lively. Clumsy now, but has impressive concentration. Best from 2014 through 2020."
