A really exciting wine with hints of prunes and plums. Very harmonious with supporting tannins. Fresh and rich and will go on for ever. Delicious. Our first-ever purchase from the property. A thrilling discovery.
Deep and inky, this grand vin shows greater intensity – the aromas are less expressive, currently held in check. The palate here is admirably rich and ripe, with a silky charm and layered sense of depth. Good intensity but by no means overstated – this will need some patience but is an equally successful wine. Take note of Moulinet in this vintage.
This is the third vintage of Christian Moueix' new Estate and it is obvious that the attention to detail expected by Christian of his team has had the desired affect. Hosanna 2001 is a beautifully crafted pomerol with exquisite clarity of flavour and appeal.
Lovely freshness here. Luscious, open, spicy and complex. A pomerol with finesse and pristine elegance.
Vraye Croix de Gay's neighbours are Châteaux Lafleur, Hosanna and Lafleur-Pétrus. In 2004 they have produced a beautifully vibrant pomerol with scents of ripe plums and black summer fruits which are confirmed on the palate. Flowing fruit flavours are carried by a terrific sense of plummy vibrance, along with freshness and definition. This is a precise and well-honed wine that in many vintages passes unnoticed by the wide majority of pomerol buyers – one is left wondering why, given its consistent poise and balance. We do not recall a more impressive wine from this property. Pin-pointed flavours and great elegance.
Intense in appearance, and the nose offers up aromas of blackberry with a fine sweet sense of ripeness. This is a fine vintage for this lesser-known second wine - lush and textural it is a fine representation of pomerol made from 70% Merlot, the balance Cabernet Franc.
