2014 Hosanna, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201254 93-96 points Vinous

 A wine of magnificent pedigree, the 2014 Hosanna boasts remarkable depth and translucence. Cloves, violets, plums, blueberries and leather are some of the many notes that flesh out. A dollop of Cabernet Franc gives the 2014 much of its aromatic presence. A spine of firm, imposing tannins propels the explosive, captivating finish. I imagine the 2014 will require quite a bit of patience, but it is a special wine, that much is clear. (AG)  (4/2015)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

 The wine has big tannins and big fruits to match them, which should result in a wine that will age very well. It is rich and exuberant in ripe black fruits and opulence. (RV)  (4/2015)

93-96 points Wine Spectator

 Dense, with solid grip, this remains very pure, featuring a polished beam of raspberry and plum fruit coursing along, inlaid with mouthwatering anise, incense and dried blood orange notes. Shows serious depth and length already, but could improve even more during the élevage. (Web Only-2015) (JM)

92-93 points James Suckling

 Focused and tight with chewy tannins and lots of blueberry, blackberry and a wet earth character. Full body and lightly chewy tannins.  (3/2015)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Château Hosanna 2014, back after a year's absence, makes up for lost time with a winning tobacco and gravel themed bouquet, plenty of black dusky fruit following behind. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. It is less exuberant and voluptuous in style compared to recent vintage, but there is more weight and presence than say, the Certan-de-May, with quite long, lightly spiced, structured finish. Perhaps this Hosanna is atypically 'serious' in style, but it should offer 15 to 20 years' drinking pleasure. (NM)  (4/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Scented and alluring. Some lovely fresh Cabernet Franc aromas and a silky texture. Very winning indeed in a medium register. Lots of refreshment (only just not too much acidity). Will always be relatively light but should offer great pleasure. 17/20 points. (JR)  (4/2015)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
