Latour à Pomerol, which draws its name from the tower that adorns this charming château, was acquired by Mme Loubat in 1917, who at the time also owned Château Petrus. Since its sale in the 1960s the Moueix family has controlled the winemaking and the distribution of the wines. The vineyard is characterised by the diversity of its soils, which brings complexity and harmony to the wine: gravel and clay on a marvellous parcel next to the church of Pomerol; loam surrounding the château.

Château Hosanna, a jewel-like vineyard is located in the heart of Pomerol’s central plateau, adjacent to some of the most illustrious crus of the appellation: Lafleur to the north; Petrus to the... east; La Fleur-Pétrus to the west and Vieux Château Certan to the south. At just 4.5 hectares it is not well known, due in part to its recent creation by Ets. Moueix only 20 years ago. The vineyard enjoys a terroir of red gravel and clay on “crasse de fer” which is known for producing wines of great elegance, complexity and power. The vineyard is planted 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, a significant portion of which date back to 1956, contribute a unique complexity to the wine. In the past few years the wine has made considerable leaps in quality and after a stellar 2019 where a new bar was set, 2020 might just pip it be the best vintage ever produced.€570 / Case€95 / BottleDuty Status: In BondAvailability: Future Arrival
