2017 Hosanna, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357370 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (LPB)  (4/2018)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck

 One of the gems of the vintage, the 2017 Hosanna checks in as 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, all from the clay, gravelly, iron-rich soils of the estate in Pomerol. It’s a gorgeously ripe, sexy red that boasts a deep purple color as well as a sensational bouquet of cassis, black raspberries, crushed flowers, and spice, with more and more floral and mineral notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied, ripe, sexy, and voluptuous on the palate, with sweet tannin, it's an opulent, straight-up rockstar of a wine.  (4/2018)

96 points James Suckling

 Very attractive aromas of violets, purple cherries and plums with notes of chocolate, cedar and baking spices. The palate has a fullish feel with very concentrated, ripe dark plums, wrapped in super long, silky tannins. Quite a deep, flavorful finish, holding long and fresh.  (1/2020)

95 points Vinous

 The 2017 Hosanna was one of my favourite crus from Ets J-P Moueix from barrel. Now in bottle, it remains a delightful Pomerol. It has a generous and beautifully defined bouquet with ample red cherry, crushed strawberry and light black truffle aromas that are actually reminiscent of Bélair-Monange. The palate is medium-bodied but denser, thicker than its peers. There is real substance to this Hosanna that puts the relatively lightweight Certan-de-May in its place. It shows good grip with a saline finish. This is a deeply impressive Hosanna. Rejoice! (NM)  (2/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc has a satisfyingly rich and perfumed character. It is dense both with tannins and black fruits, ripe and with enough concentration to promise good aging. (RV)  (1/2020)

93 points Decanter

 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. (JA)  (4/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Caressing in feel, with hints of ganache and incense draped over a core of warmed plum and cassis flavors. The tobacco-infused finish features good flesh and length. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM)  (3/2029)

Jancis Robinson

 Deepest crimson. Plenty of dark fruit but also a very slight herbaceous note, not unripe. Lots of finesse in the tannins here, real elegance, quite light on the mid palate but all in balance. 17/20 points. (JH)  (4/2018)
