Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix

Château Hosanna

2006

Pomerol

In early 1999, Etablissement Jean-Pierre Moueix purchased a property in Pomerol called Château Certan-Giraud. The property consisted of two distinctly different parcels; the parcel on the elevated part of the property was renamed Château Hosanna and the remaining parcel was later sold. Located in the center of the Pomerol plateau, Hosanna lies between the appellation’s most well-known properties. On the north side is Château Lafleur, to the east is Château Petrus and to the south are Vieux Château Certan and Château Certan de May.

Tasting Notes

The color of the wine is an opaque bright ruby. On the nose, it is first very fresh then tends toward gamey notes, floral and tobacco scents. This wine is has a tight tannic and bright frame. It shows breed and nobility with endless tongue and recurrent waves of aromas.

Additional Information

The 2001 vintage was characterized by a quick flowering process. A wet month of July slightly delayed the veraison and on August 10th the vineyard team began the long process of ‘toilettage’ (manicuring the bunches by eliminating late green fruits). The perfect combination of a hot August and a cool, dry month in September allowed for picking to begin on September 22nd and finish by October 5th. These perfect harvest conditions resulted in a vintage that has produced classic and elegant wines with delicate fruit expressions.
