Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle
Chateau Hosanna's esteemed reputation dates back to the early 20th century, closely linked to the legacy of the Moueix family. The current owner, Christian Moueix, is also the genius behind other reputable names like Dominus Estate in California. Although a Bordeaux native, his winemaking style has earned international acclaim.
Vineyard & Craftsmanship
The vineyard encompasses just 4.5 hectares but holds a diverse mix of gravel, clay, and sandy soils that yield a unique complexity. The grape balance leans heavily towards Merlot (70%), complemented by Cabernet Franc (30%). The scarce vineyard space makes each bottle an exclusive acquisition, with limited releases amplifying the investment appeal.
Aging & Investment Value
Chateau Hosanna's wines are built for longevity. Their aging potential stretches easily to over two decades, gaining complexity and value with each passing year. Given the limited availability, these wines make a solid addition to any investment portfolio.
