Chateau Hosanna Pomerol 2016

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 6


The 2016 Hosanna is outrageously beautiful. Creamy, ample and powerful, yet also remarkably light on its feet for such a big wine from clay soils, it exudes finesse from start to finish. The 2016 simply has it all. As always, the flavor profile leans toward the darker end of the spectrum, with hints of mocha and chocolate that are quite complementary. The tannins are there, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. With time in the glass, the 2016 becomes more and more captivating. Hosanna is often a wine of allure. The 2016 is that, but it is incredibly elegant as well. -Antonio Galloni, Apr 2017

The 2016 Hosanna is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. It has a clean, detailed bouquet with truffle-tinged black fruit, fine mineralite and impressive vigor, certainly less opulent than some of the Hosannas from the noughties. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a masculine Hosanna with fine tension, a little savory with black truffle and white pepper sprinkled liberally over the finish. I would have liked more flesh to show on the finish, although that should develop to an extent during its barrel maturation. Give this three or four years in bottle. -Neal Martin, Apr 2017

Barrel Sample. A very fine wine rich in both tannins and dense blackberry fruits. Fruity and ripe, it is a perfect reflection of the quality of this vintage and will age well. -Roger Voss, Web 2017

Delightfully ripe and pure, with cassis, cherry puree and creamed raspberry notes gliding through, carried by a polished structure and ending with a floral hint. Remarkably integrated already. -James Molesworth, Web 2017

This really shows a lot at the end of the palate with a powerful, tannic finish. Even so, the fruit and flavor profile are very, very impressive. Lots of dark fruit and walnut undertones. Muscular Hosanna. -James Suckling, Apr 2017
