The Story

Château HOSANNA deftly marries elegance with depth and could be considered, thanks to the delicate touch of the Cabernet Franc, a feminine counterpart to Château PETRUS.

Château Hosanna is unclassified, but has historically been considered among the great crus of the region. The property is situated south of Château Lafleur, west of Château Pétrus and north of Château Vieux Certan. Sharing its origin with Château Vieux Certan and Château Certan-de-May, the estate was once part of the original Certan property, belonging to the de May family before the French Revolution. For a period, the wine was sold as Château Certan-Marzelle, until it was acquired by the Giraud family in 1956, and was renamed Château Certan-Giraud.


In early 1999 ETS. Jean-Pierre Moueix purchased Château Certan- Giraud and the property was divided into two parts, one of which was sold. The remaining 12 acre parcel, located in the heart of the Pomerol plateau, was renamed Hosanna
The illustrious and famed Bordeaux negociant firm of Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix was founded in 1937 and holds exclusive rights to sell and manage some of the greatest vineyards on the right bank of Bordeaux. The properties of Jean-Pierre Moueix can be found in the appelations of pomerol and St. Emilion with each estate being carefully selected by Christian Moueix. The Moueix family have defined a style of winemaking distinguished by integrity and total devotion to the expression of each individual vineyard.

Only the best fruit from the oldest vines of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc is used to produce Hosanna, with the remainder sold as Château Certan Marzelle. This is one of the most exciting properties in Pomerol, producing wines that manage to be rich and concentrated while retaining the appellation’s classic charm and elegance.
