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 . 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. The first production under the name Hosanna was the stellar 2000 vintage.
A marriage of intensity, purity and balance, its silky touch has led some to describe Hosanna as the feminine counterpart to Trotanoy, a property in the same stable.
