Château Hosanna Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2006
A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this is the Cheval Blanc of Pomerol. A wine of admirable complexity, elegance, and purity, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as wonderful notes of blueberries, mint, acacia flowers, espresso, and white chocolate. Opulent, rich, and pure, with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, and wood, it is a beautiful offering that is not far off the pace of the exceptional 2000. Sadly, there are only about 1,000 cases of this offering produced from the finest parcels of old vines carved from the vineyard previously known as Certan-Giraud. Kudos to proprietor Christian Moueix.

94 points Robert Parker: `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.` (02/09) 92-94 points Wine Spectator: `Very attractive blackberry olive and spicy oak on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied with silky refined tannins and a medium-to-long finish. There's lots going on. This was picked before the rain.`
