Tasting Notes and Scores

91-93

Bordeaux Index

Plenty on the nose, with abundant dark fruit. Fleshy and round in the mouth, with ripe juicy fruit, a little spice and signature freshness of the vintage. Easy access right now, this doesn’t drive as hard on the finish as some others, but will appeal broadly.

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Hosanna is a fleshy, expressive wine, offering up aromas of sweet plums and berries mingled with spices, licorice, rose petals and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, broad and open-knit, it's a lively, charming wine that will likely take on more depth and structure with further élevage in barrel.
William Kelley, April 2022

Neal Martin

The 2021 Hosanna was picked from September 24 to October 6. It presents a beautiful bouquet of delineated, focused black cherries, blueberry and wilted violet scents, plus a hint of gravel in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry, presaging a typical solid structure, and quite saline, demonstrating much more grip and substance on the finish compared to, say, Latour à Pomerol or La Grave. Cellar this for 4–6 years if you can. Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2022

James Suckling

This is silky and very fine with firm, seamless tannins that are just a tiny bit angular now. Medium body. Plenty of sweet mulberry, raspberry, wet clay and olive notes. Mocha at the end. Long.

Jancis Robinson

Savoury and meaty, full and round with some drive on the finish. Tannins fine but less power and intensity than recent years. Harmonious all the same. (JL)

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Hosanna is a pretty wine, but it is also a bit disjointed at this stage. At times, Hosanna appears to be a touch light, while in other moments the wine is more brooding in character. Coulure was a big issue in younger vine Merlot. Because of that, the 2021 relies more on the older vines, which date back to 1957. Yields were down to 28 hectoliters per hectare as opposed to the more typical 35 or so, which might also explain a sort of intensity that has not taken a clear direction yet. What seems pretty evident, though, is that the 2021 lacks the opulence that is such a signature here. Edouard Moueix explained that the 2021 may spend more time in barrel than normal, which would not surprise me given its current awkward stage. Élevage will be everything here.

Jane Anson

Beautifully constructed, cheerful, if a little tight, this needs time to round out, but has delicious sculpted fruits and spiralling gunsmoke and grilled earth that focuses the end of play. Harvest September 24 to October 6.
