Chateau Hosanna (Pomerol) 2018
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. 93 Jane Anson, Decanter
I expected the 2018 Hosanna to be super-rich and flamboyant, but instead I am quite struck by how finessed it is. There is plenty of depth and intensity in the glass, but at the same time, Hosanna retains a level of both translucence and structure that make it wonderfully complete. My impression is that the 2018 is still holding quite a bit back in reserve, and that is a very good thing. 93-96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
The 2018 Hosanna is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, 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. 95-97 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.
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. 95-96 James Suckling
