Available for:
Magnificent property acquired in 1953 and situated just across from Petrus. Expanded in 1994, thanks to a superb gravelly bump which enhanced the quality of the vineyard. The elegant country house dating from 1782 stands on the north of Pomerol's plateau.

Possibly as remarkable as both the 2009 and 2010, the 2008 Hosanna is one of the superstars of the vintage. Its dense plum/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of spring flowers, black currants, boysenberries, white chocolate and forest floor. This irresistible, opulent, textured, fleshy 2008 should continue to drink well for 15-20+ years. Don-t miss it!

Austere wine, its tannins pushing forward to give power and structure. It is dense, concentrated, with layer upon layer of bitter coffee and dark fruit flavors, acidity and sweet tannins.

Fig, clove and tobacco flavors are dark and alluring in this muscular red, which has a thick, muscular texture, but a core of plum and currant fruit keeps it all lively. Clumsy now, but has impressive concentration. Best from 2014 through 2020. 1,265 cases made
