2020 Château Hosanna  (Pomerol) 98

Dark in color, the wine is loaded with truffle, flowers, black and blue fruits and spice. Full-bodied with a serious depth of flavor, the wine is rich, supple, silky, long and intense. With the texture of velvet, the perfectly ripe, sweet, plums, cherries, blackberries, blueberries and dark cocoa holds on to your palate for at least 50 seconds. The purity here is just great. Give it a decade in the cellar and this will be a beauty. Clearly, this is the finest vintage of Hosanna ever produced. 97-99 Pts

Flowers, black cherry, boysenberry, truffle and dark chocolate pop right up in the perfume. Kind of an earthy Pop-Tartt.

The epitome of Pomerol, combining floral, truffle, espresso, dark red fruit and licorice elements. Refined, structured and elegant, the full bodied wine is graceful, young, long and fresh. Give it another 4-6 more years in the cellar and it should develop a lot more nuance and grace. 93 Points

2001 Hosanna was produced from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine required coaxing to generate the earthy, truffle, black and blue stone fruit and chocolate aromas. Plush tannins and good concentration are an important part of this Pomerol's make up. The wine ends with a tight, cocoa and plummy finish. This bottle was more closed than previous examples. 91 Pts

Still a bit oaky, which is surprising at close to 20 years of age, the wine is full, deep, round, lush and fruity with its layers of licorice infused plums, cherry, truffle and dark cocoa. The wine has good intensity, but the oak needs more integration before this really rocks. 94 Points
