2000 Hosanna

RP 96 / WS 95

Formerly Chateau Certan-Giraud

"Dense ruby/purple, with a glorious nose of blackberries, cassis, white flowers, licorice, and a hint of sweet oak, this seamless wine is a classic example of purity and symmetry. Combining power with charm and finesse in a deeply textured, rich, elegant, yet authoritatively flavorful style, this is a brilliant effort as well as a compliment to proprietor Christian Moueix." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #146 (Apr 2003)
