Chateau Hosanna 2017

Product description

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Hosanna is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and sashays out of the glass with beautiful red rose and violets scents over a core of baked blueberries, mulberries and plum preserves plus wafts of vanilla pod and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed full of perfumed black and blue fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and fragrant.

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. Try from 2023.

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. Drink from 2023.

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    The 2017 Chateau Hosanna is a wonderful wine in the vintage, offering more pleasure and sexiness than most out there. Based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it sports a deep ruby/purple hue to go with fabulous notes of creme de cassis, black raspberries, crushed flowers, Asian spices, and incense. With a kiss of background oak, medium to full body, a silky texture, and stunning length, it's a classic, flawlessly balanced Pomerol to enjoy over the coming two decades.

93 Points - Decanter    Violet edging and cherry red body, hints of gourmet chocolate, and a welcome return to some Pomerol flesh in a vintage where this character is a little thin on the ground. Hard to argue with the enjoyment here, and it's easy to recommend for its red fruits, rosemary, slate-edged finish that turns into a mouthwatering salinity. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040.

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.
