2018 Domaine Olivier Hillaire Les Petits Pieds d'Armand  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 94

The floral notes really sing here. From there you find ripe raspberries, kirsch and freshness on the nose and medium-bodied palate. The end notes are all about the silky textures and refined, elegant stylings. 94 Points

2018 Domaine Olivier Hillaire  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Medium bodied, forward, soft and already deceptively easy to taste, the wine is fruity, soft, round, sweet and juicy with a nice, peppery, kirsch kick in the finish. The wine is a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah. 91 Points

There is a lot to like here starting with all the sweet, black raspberries, cherries, kirsch, flowers and spice on the nose and palate. The wine is medium-bodied, lifted, soft and silky, with a nice dose of concentrated peppery red fruits in the finish. 95 Points

2010 Domaine Olivier Hillaire  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

This relatively new producer began making wine in about 2004. With fresh black cherries, earth, fresh herbs, leather and kirsch, the wine gets your attention. Full bodied, rich and lush, the wine finishes with ripe, jammy black raspberries. 92 Points

2010 Domaine Olivier Hillaire Les Petits Pieds d'Armand  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

2010 Olivier Hillaire Les Petits Pieds d’Armand is stuffed with licorice, jammy blackberries and cherry. From 100% old vine Grenache, and when I say old, I mean vines over 100 years old, this concentrated, pure, kirsch, Provencal herb and peppery is lush and lusty. 95 Points

Rich, fat, ripe, juicy, lush, concentrated and frankly delicious, the wine is all about its perfectly ripe black raspberry, kirsch liqueur, jam and spicy character. The finish really lasts and leaves a positive impression. 94 Points
