Chateau Hosanna, Pomerol


Chateau Hosanna does not have a long history in the Pomerol appellation. Until quite recently, the vineyard was used to produce wines previously sold under the name of Chateau Certan Giraud . In the estates formative years, the vines were part of the vast de May estate which gave birth to Vieux Chateau Certan, Certan de May and the aforementioned Chateau Certan Giraud and other properties. During the early to mid 20th century, the estate was known as Chateau Certan Talazac. By 1950, the vineyard was selling their wine using the name of Chateau Certan Marzelle . Jumping ahead to the modern era, following the frost of 1956, the estate became the property of the Giraud family who renamed the estate, Chateau Giraud. The Giraud family later sold the best vines of the estate to Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1999. The remaining 4 hectares of vines were sold sold to Jean Hubert Delon, better known as the other of Chateau Leoville Las Cases. Those wines were used to increase the size of Chateau Nenin, which is owned by Jean Hubert Delon. When the sale first took place in 1999, Christian Moueix planned on selling the wine using the name Chateau Certan. While Alexandre Thienpont of Vieux Chateau Certan had no problem with a new Pomerol wine being sold as Chateau Certan, due to objections from the owner of Certan de May, who felt that name was too similar to their estate, Christian Moueix chose the name Hosanna for the new winery. One of the first moves made by Christian Moueix after taking control of the vineyard was to improve the drainage. They also added to deep wells to the property, which further removed excess water. His next step was to replant much of the vineyard that was previously used to produce Certan Marzelle. Hosanna is one of the top, new Pomerol properties to watch. This exciting, new, Right Bank winery announced its intention to produce stellar wines starting with a pair of back to back hits, 2000 and 2001! They have not looked back since.
