Château Hosanna is located in the heart of Pomerol, close to some of the most famous wineries in Pomerol such as Château Petrus and Vieux-Château Certan. One of Château Hosanna's most famous vintages is the Château Hosanna 2009, rated with a very high point score by many international reviewers.
Château Hosanna's estate has 4.5 hectares of land, 70% of which is made up of Merlot vines and 30% of Cabernet Franc. Some Cabernet Franc vines have been on the territory since the mid-19th century. The vines are established on blue clay soils and red gravel on a so-called "crasse de fer" soil type, which is considered a fundamental element in Pomerol wine production.
The history story of Château Hosanna dates back to the 16th century, when the De Mey family planted Pomerol's first vines. The château was originally named as "Château Certan Giraud", which, at the time, many believed had produced the best cru's in Pomerol.
Château Certan Giraud consisted of two defined pieces of land, which was split up after the château was taken over by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1999. One of the pieces of land was called Château Hosanna and the other Château Certan Marzelle. The latter was later resold, allowing Château Hosanna to continue Jean-Pierre Moueix's success story!Read more
