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.

Wine Profile

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.

With 30% Cabernet Franc, this is a finely perfumed wine from a small 11-acre property. It is poised and balanced, with dark tannins and a dense, smoky character that will allow it to age well. It has power and excellent potential, and will likely to be ready to drink from 2023.

tasting notes

No frost and an early-budding year allowed the fruit to ripen well on this 4.5ha clay and gravel estate. The coolish but dry summer still translates into fruit character that is powerful rather than exuberant, but it's well handled and extremely enjoyable, restrained but rather beautiful. The tight tannins will need a good six years before drinking.
