The 2016 Hosanna is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. It has a clean, detailed bouquet with truffle-tinged black fruit, fine mineralite and impressive vigor, certainly less opulent than some of the Hosannas from the noughties. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a masculine Hosanna with fine tension, a little savory with black truffle and white pepper sprinkled liberally over the finish. I would have liked more flesh to show on the finish, although that should develop to an extent during its barrel maturation. Give this three or four years in bottle.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points Wine Advocate

Ratings
Delightfully ripe and pure, with cassis, cherry puree and creamed raspberry notes gliding through, carried by a polished structure and ending with a floral hint. Remarkably integrated already. Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points Wine Spectator
Awards
A very fine wine rich in both tannins and dense blackberry fruits. Fruity and ripe, it is a perfect reflection of the quality of this vintage and will age well. Barrel Sample: 94–96 Points Wine Enthusiast

Other Notes
Situated in Libourne along the Dordogne River, the Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, of which Château 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.
