This is the finest Hosanna that proprietor Christian Moueix has yet made, produced from a 15-acre parcel that usually yields about 1,500 cases. The 2009, a prodigious blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, offers up an exquisite aromatic concoction of blackberries, plums, Asian soy, forest floor, truffles and graphite. Along with its stunning concentration, remarkably thick, juicy mid-palate and unbelievable complexity, its viscosity and opulence take this wine to new heights. This extraordinary wine is one of the superstars of 2009 and one to enjoy over the next three decades. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at JP Moueix. The Hosanna 2009 has a ripe, well defined nose with blackberry, coca, a touch of dark chocolate and bay leaf. Quite complex, but forward and generous. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly furry tannins on the entry, well balanced with good weight, a more lactic texture towards the finish that is well defined, but very linear at the moment, quite earthy towards the foursquare finish. This will need 5-6 years after bottling. Tasted April 2010.

Stunning aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, hazelnut and black olive skin. Full- bodied, with ultra-fine tannins that feel fine silky on my palate. Long finish of coffee bean, chocolate and dark fruits. Best Hosanna ever. Try in 2020. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Offers ripe plum, with hints of peach, turning to violet and black olive on the nose. Fascinating aromas. Full-bodied, featuring chewy tannins that turn polished and silky. Long and flavorful at the finish. Refined power

Dumb nose without super freshness. Very ripe indeed. Lots of freshness on the palate. Though this is the Moueix wine that pushes most to the limit of ripeness. For modernists. Rather a leathery texture on the finish.

In the same mould as the 2005. Powerful, firm and long ageing with ripe, attractive fruit. Good depth and concentration. Rich, smooth tannic extract. Drink 2020-2040.
