Pomerol's Château Hosanna was originally part of the huge Certan estate that belonged to the de May family before the French Revolution. This was split up into Vieux Château Certan, Certan-de-May and Certan-Giraud.
The Giraud family sold the latter estate to Christian Moueix in 1999; Moueix intended to use the name Château Certan, but decided on the name Hosanna after encountering objections from Certande-May.
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.
