2015 Hosanna, Pomerol

SKU #1402040 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A monumental wine is the 2015 Hosanna and it’s 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc raised in (I suspect) all new barrels that’s from a single parcel of older vines. One of those rare wines to pair incredible opulence with off the charts elegance and purity, it’s up with the top handful of wines in this vintage and readers should do whatever they can to taste this beauty. Loaded with notions of blackcurrants, black raspberries, toasty oak, truffles, graphite, and spice-box, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, an ethereal, seamless texture, perfect balance, and a huge finish. It’s unquestionably one of the superstars in the vintage and should last for 25-30 years. Hats off to the Moueix team! Inner quote mark (11/2017)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has the wow factor; it's very impressive. The nose is saturated with dark, rich plums and wet-earth aromas, not to mention the roasted-coffee and crushed-violet undertones. The palate has polished, lustrous appeal, and dark plums and ripe blueberry flavors abound. Long, deep-set tannins with incredible depth. This has x-factor depth and elegance. Best from 2025.

97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Hosanna had a medium garnet-purple color, charging out of the glass with an exotic perfume of smoked meats, truffles, sandalwood and Indian spices over a compelling core of cherry cordial, blackberry tart and blueberry compote plus suggestions of garrigue and rose hip tea. The full-bodied palate is absolutely laden with taut, muscular black and blue fruits, with a solid frame of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with languidly lingering licorice and spice flavors. Incredibly seductive and just plain delicious right now, hedonists can enjoy this captivating wine while it’s relatively young, while traditionalists can wait ten years and drink it over the next 25 years or more.

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Another muscular wine from the Moueix stable in 2015, showcasing the strength of Merlot grown on gravel and clay soils in Pomerol. This is excellent, majoring on liquorice, cigar box, graphite and brambled fruits. A wine that will age very slowly and reward patience. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine with its dense and dusty tannins has considerable power as well as concentration. The small 10-acre vineyard has produced a wine packed with both tannins and luscious black fruits. Acidity complements all this richness with its own freshness and balance. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Hosanna has a generous bouquet of brambly red fruit, rose petal and hints of fresh fig, all well defined with a ferrous note emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, rounded and velvety smooth. A plush, sensual finish is less mineral driven than I noticed before. This is an excellent Hosanna. I expect that score to go up with bottle age. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) 94+ Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fleshy and inviting, featuring warm fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes laced with ganache and tobacco accents. Long and especially velvety through the finish, with waves of fruit and ganache in lockstep. This will have fans for sure. Best from 2022 through 2035. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

K&L Notes

95 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "A dense, powerful Pomerol, the 2015 Hosanna hits the palate with a huge center of fruit and layers of flavor that open up effortlessly in the glass. Hosanna is easily the most exotically ripe, flamboyant wine in the Mouiex range. Dense, powerful and also quite structured, with huge tannins, Hosanna is going to need at least a number of years before it is at its best. Hosanna is also one of the darkest and most potent Pomerols readers will taste in 2015." (02/2018)
