2014 Hosanna, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201254 95 points James Suckling

 Fascinating aromas of crushed raspberries, stones and flowers. Full-bodied, dense and concentrated with fruit, wet concrete and walnut skin. A wine that is tight and structured. Needs time to soften. Try in 2022.  (2/2017)

95 points Vinous

 The 2014 Hosanna is rich, bold and dramatic, with all of its customary intensity on display. Black cherry, blueberry jam, plum, lavender and exotic spice overtones crescendo as this dramatic, sweeping Pomerol shows off its grandiose personality. Ample and voluptuous, but with plenty of underlying structure, it possesses fabulous depth as well as pedigree. A touch of Cabernet Franc adds aromatic intrigue, but above all else, Hosanna is a wine of breadth. 95+ Points (AG)  (2/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a small, 10-acre property, owned by the Moueix family, at the heart of the Pomerol plateau. With its 30% Cabernet Franc it is perfumed and ripe, giving delicious black fruits as well as a firmer structure. The wine is set for a long aging with great potential. Drink from 2024.

93 points Wine Spectator

 Very dense, with a wall of ganache and loam holding the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black currant fruit in check for now. The tannins are evident yet ripe, and seem to be slowly melding with the fruit. The finish drips with dark earth notes. Patience is required. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)  (3/2017)

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.
