This small vineyard was created by Ets Jean-Pierre Moueix from the best vines of the former Château Certan Giraud. The first vintage was 1999.

"The 2021 Hosanna was picked from September 24 to October 6. It presents a beautiful bouquet of delineated, focused black cherries, blueberry and wilted violet scents, plus a hint of gravel in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry, presaging a typical solid structure, and quite saline, demonstrating much more grip and substance on the finish compared to, say, Latour à Pomerol or La Grave. Cellar this for 4–6 years if you can."
Neal Martin,, May 2022

"The 2021 Hosanna is a fleshy, expressive wine, offering up aromas of sweet plums and berries mingled with spices, licorice, rose petals and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, broad and open-knit, it's a lively, charming wine that will likely take on more depth and structure with further élevage in barrel."
William Kelley, Wine Advocate (260), April 2022

"This is silky and very fine with firm, seamless tannins that are just a tiny bit angular now. Medium body. Plenty of sweet mulberry, raspberry, wet clay and olive notes. Mocha at the end. Long."
James Suckling,, May 2022

"Beautifully constructed, cheerful, if a little tight, this needs time to round out, but has delicious sculpted fruits and spiralling gunsmoke and grilled earth that focuses the end of play. Harvest September 24 to October 6."
Jane Anson,, April 2022
