Tasting Note:

Edouard explained that an enormous amount of effort went into the 2012 vintage. Vineyard workers cut off double-buds, removed third clusters, leaf thinned during the summer and before the harvest, but they felt these methods were required to ensure an even and healthy crop. Hosanna is probably the most exotic of the Pomerols in the Moueix stable. There are notes of plum, cherry liqueur chocolates, eucalyptus and flowers. There is an almost Napa like sweetness of fruit; super-ripe, seductive and lush, but there is precision too. Plush and polished.
