reviewsJames Suckling 99-100
This shows very intense, old-vine character with bark, black mushroom and dark fruit. Full-bodied and creamy with unique flavors of earth and fruit. Layered and soulful. The best Hosanna ever? Merlot and cabernet franc. 45% from old vines, dating from the late 1950s.
The 2020 Hosanna is packed with blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather, licorice and spices. Unctuous and flamboyant, Hosanna is always incredibly distinctive. In 2020, I find Hosanna a bit monolithic and less complex than its two Pomerol stable mates (La Fleur-Pétrus and Trotanoy) but it certainly offers tons of immediacy. Hosanna is always a soloist, never an orchestra.
