Château Hosanna 2009

RRP £183

Another Moueix wine, but this time more opulent. The bouquet is of pure, piercing damson fruit and flashes of mocha. In the mouth, the wine is open-knit and silky, with vibrant, vivid dark fruit and notes of tobacco which seem to come from wood without it feeling at all synthetic or made-up. Unadulterated pleasure in a bottle.
