James Suckling 98-99

Wow. This is an incredibly structured Hosanna with tannin tension and density, yet resilience and verve. Full and dense while being weightless and bright at the end. Thought-provoking contrasts. Old vine magic. One for the cellar. 74% merlot and 26% cabernet franc.

Jancis Robinson 17+

74% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample. Discreet but complex. Red-fruit fragrance with a floral nuance. Tannins ripe and long providing a smooth-textured feel. Clean, long finish. Not the most exuberant but plenty of substance. (JL) Drink 2030– 2045

Decanter 95

Jane Anson - Black chocolate and espresso on first hit, this is measured, enjoyable, slowly and carefully builds in drama through the palate, highly charged but with balance and a kick of slate. The body of the wine centres around cassis, bilberry, rosemary, turmeric, an edge of exoticism with a welcome shot of freshness. A muscular wine, fully capable to supporting the intensity of the vintage. Harvest September 5 to 19, 4.5ha.

Parker 92-95

Offering up aromas of blackberries, minty blackcurrants, licorice and spices, the 2022 Hosanna is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a broad, velvety attack that segues into a layered, fleshy mid-palate of ripe but lively fruit that's framed by polished tannins. This is always one of the more extravagant wines in the Mouiex portfolio, but in 2022 its exuberance remains in check.

Wine Spectator 95-97

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW "The 2022 Hosanna is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc, sporting a deep garnet-purple color. After a swirl or two the most gorgeous perfume of red roses, juicy black cherries, and black raspberries erupts from the glass, followed by wafts of crushed rocks, cast iron pan, and unsmoked cigars. The full-bodied palate is very tightly wound with loads of bright red and black fruit layers, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing long and perfumed. Beautiful."

Vinous 93-95

Neal MArtin "The 2022 Hosanna was picked from 5-19 September. This is backward, almost surly on the nose. Blackberry, wild mint and light blood orange aromas reluctantly manifest on the nose; iodine touches emerge later. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that frame the black fruit laced with tobacco and thyme. There is something almost stentorian about this Hosanna, and as such, it will demand a decade in bottle. A serious Pomerol that is a bit saturnine at the moment. I am prudent with my score because I would like a little more finesse. 2029-2050"
