Notes from the Winemaker:

Domaine Oliver Hillaire is a small 23 acre estate in France's Southern Rhone Valley. Olivier has 30+ years experience of winemaking in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. With this experience he has learned that keeping his yields very low helps produce wines with great concentration and soft, silky tannins. This great wine, like Olivier, can be enjoyed in its youth but will also age very well!

Ratings & Reviews


93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The flagship cuvée and the smallest production release is the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds D'Armand, which is 100% old vine Grenache from the western, sandy parts of the La Crau plateau. Still aging in 500-liter demi-muids, this puppy has rocking concentration and depth, with full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and loads of strawberry, black cherry, blueberry, Provençal garrigue and hints of flowers. While a big, rich wine, it stays incredibly graceful and even elegant, which is the house style as well." - Jeb Dunnuck (Oct 2016)

92-94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Vivid ruby-red. Powerful, mineral-laced raspberry, cherry liqueur and incense aromas pick up suggestions of Asian spices and candied flowers with air. Palate-staining red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors deepen and spread out on the back half while maintaining vivacity and focus. Deftly blends power and finesse. A smoky mineral quality adds definition to the strikingly long, sweet finish." - Josh Raynolds (Mar 2017)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Silky and perfumy, with lovely black tea, warm anise and singed cinnamon notes leading the way, followed by lightly mulled black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. Everything knits together through the sneaky-long finish, picking up subtle tarry grip along the way. Best from 2027 through 2040. 450 cases made." -JM (12/2017)
