Structured, rich and concentrated, this is more supple textured than many Pomerol wines from 2006. Packed with ripe, juicy plums, truffle and choclate covered cherries, I'd let this rest until at least 2016 before starting to enjoy its ample charms.

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.
