Château-Hosanna Pomerol 2008

Save $100.00 (40%)

SKU 01673


Planted to 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc with old vines averaging 40 years, Hosanna was previously known as Certan-Giraud. Owned by the reputable Jean-Pierre Moueix firm, the talented Christian Moueix has made Hosanna into a superstar since their acquisition in 1998. Parker gushes: 'Hosanna comes closest in aroma, taste and texture to a hypothetical blend of Cheval Blanc and L'Evangile (both of which are located only about one mile away). It is one of Pomerol's finest.' Only 1500 cases produced each year.

Wine AdvocatePossibly 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!

Wine EnthusiastAustere 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.

Wine SpectatorFig, 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. 1,265 cases made
