Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/02/2009
Drink: 2009-2024


This limited production wine is made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from the very finest part of the vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol, which used to be known as Certan-Giraud. It often reminds me of Cheval Blanc, at least from an aromatic perspective, but in 2006 the wine seems to verge in the direction of the more exotic, flamboyant style of Le Pin. Dense plum/ruby...

...to the rim, with a sweet nose of roasted coffee, caramel, mocha, and lavish quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit, this wine has a lush, sensual texture, full-bodied depth, and stunning length and purity. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.

Drink: 2010-2020


Made from a vineyard that was harvested one day before the mid-September rains arrived, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc exhibits a dense plum/purple color, a fabulous texture, and extraordinary opulence, concentration, and expansiveness. Tasting like it was made from an extremely ripe Right Bank vintage, this may be the finest Hosanna Christian Moueix has yet made, even eclipsing the 2005 and 2000. Given its low acidity and luxurious fruit, it should be ready to drink at a relatively early age. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.
