Jeb Dunnuck
The inky purple/blue-colored 2018 Château Hosanna is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, all from a tiny 11-acre vineyard of clay and gravelly soils in Pomerol. Close in quality to La Fleur Petrus and Trotanoy (also in the lineup from Christian Moueix), it has a magical bouquet of blue fruits, tobacco, scorched earth, graphite, and crushed stone that, despite coming from a deep, rich, primordial barrel sample, is still layered and complex. Full-bodied, deep, and seamless on the palate, with fine tannins, it's a profound Pomerol that's going to flirt with perfection on release.
Barrel Sample: 97-99
WS 98
Wine Spectator
This has a strong tobacco and loam aspect, with lots of black currant, fig and bitter cherry fruit. Shows heft and muscle throughout. Dense and built for the cellar.
Barrel Sample: 95-98
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Hosanna is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little closed to begin, giving way to black and red plum preserves, wild blueberries and boysenberries with suggestions of forest floor, bouquet garni and Marmite toast. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers profound, mouth-coating black fruits with firm, velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a lingering herbal lift.
Barrel Sample: 95-97
JS 96
James Suckling
This tension and focus to this is very impressive with a freshness and linear drive that really perk you up. Medium to full body, chewy yet polished tannins and a crisp finish.
Barrel Sample: 95-96
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This finely structured offers rich tannins that are already well balanced. Big, black fruit flavors from Merlot still have to push through this dense structure, but all the elements are there in this concentrated wine.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
D 93
Decanter

This is very good quality and clearly will age - powerful yet fresh, sculpted, with more than a touch of 2010 about it. It’s a more masculine take on the vintage but without sacrificing charm. Drinking Window 2028 - 2040. Barrel Sample: 93

Chateau Hosanna, France
Chateau Hosanna Winery Image
Situated in Libourne along the Dordogne River, the Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, of which Chateau Hosanna is a part, was founded in 1937. It is internationally known for its expertise in the Bordeaux wines of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion.

The company began its history as a wine merchant, specializing in the wines from the right bank of Bordeaux. The founder, Jean-Pierre Moueix, became one of the most influential people of the area when he began investing in properties of the region in 1952. At this time, the vineyard owners had no control over the finished product, since the "négoce" (negociants) of Bordeaux controlled the bottling and the sales. Mr. Moueix understood the market and what needed to be done. He was a visionary. The company is now managed by his son, Christian.

Pomerol Wine

Bordeaux, France

A source of exceptionally sensual and glamorous red wines, Pomerol is actually a rather small appellation in an unassuming countryside. It sits on a plateau immediately northeast of the city of Libourne on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Pomerol and St-Émilion are the stars of what is referred to as Right Bank Bordeaux: Merlot-dominant red blends completed by various amounts of Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pomerol has no official classification system, its best wines are some of the world’s most sought after.

Historically Pomerol attached itself to the larger and more picturesque neighboring region of St-Émilion until the late 1800s when discerning French consumers began to recognize the quality and distinction of Pomerol on its own. Its popularity spread to northern Europe in the early 1900s.

After some notable vintages of the 1940s, the Pomerol producer, Petrus, began to achieve great international attention and brought widespread recognition to the appellation. Its subsequent distribution by the successful Libourne merchant, Jean-Pierre Mouiex, magnified Pomerol's fame after the Second World War.

Perfect for Merlot, the soils of Pomerol—clay on top of well-drained subsoil—help to create wines capable of displaying an unprecedented concentration of color and flavor.

The best Pomerol wines will be intensely hued, with qualities of fresh wild berries, dried fig or concentrated black plum preserves. Aromas may be of forest floor, sifted cocoa powder, anise, exotic spice or toasted sugar and will have a silky, smooth but intense texture.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde River, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

Tasting Notes for Bordeaux Blends

Bordeaux Blends are dry, red wines and generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry plum, graphite, cedar and violet. Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines, modeled after the Right Bank, are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure.

Perfect Food Pairings for Bordeaux Blends

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secrets for Bordeaux Blends

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties in specified percentages, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, for example. Occassionally a winemaker might add a small percentage of a non-Bordeaux variety, such as Syrah or Petite Sirah for a desired result.
