Hidden Gem Vintage
Many drinkers think lowly about Bordeaux 2001 vintages, however, they have ignored a hidden gem that has a micro-climate that was stunning in 2001 – Pomerol. Thus, having such a perception of average 2001 vintages, most wines including Pomerol wines were under-valued. If you want value picking, go for 2001 Pomerol wines like this Hosanna.
Bouquet of ripe and soft almost overloaded amount of blueberries, plus a hint of tar and smoke, a very typical character of great Pomerol vintages. Content was ripe and smooth, very rich but no harshness, tannins were masked behind the fruits, with 18 years of bottle ageing, it’s quite ready to drink now, although it can still benefit from a couple of decades of cellaring. If you want a glimpse of Petrus, Hosanna will give you a shadow of Petrus, incidentally Hosanna is owned by the JP Moueix family who also owns Petrus.
