The dense ruby/purple-tinged full-bodied powerful rich 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand offers up notions of sweet black cherry and raspberry fruit licorice smoke and earth. It is similar to the 2006 but possesses more acidity and tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.When Olivier Hillaire dissolved his partnership with Domaine des Relagnes he took one of their top vineyard parcels Les Petits Pieds d'Armand with him. Hillaire is a multi-talented gentleman as not only is he a skilled winemaker but he also owns the finest bakery in the village of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Deep ruby. Wild array of red and dark berry fresh floral and incense aromas. Cherry-vanilla and cola flavors are deep and sweet but surprisingly fresh and lively with suave minerality extending through the finish. This is... Deep ruby. Wild array of red and dark berry fresh floral and incense aromas. Cherry-vanilla and cola flavors are deep and sweet but surprisingly fresh and lively with suave minerality extending through the finish. This is delicious now.

A lovely beam of crème de cassis runs through this silky rich red which also sports licorice black tea and raspberry ganache notes. The long fine-grained finish lets the fruit play out almost leaving a heady impression... A lovely beam of crème de cassis runs through this silky rich red which also sports licorice black tea and raspberry ganache notes. The long fine-grained finish lets the fruit play out almost leaving a heady impression but the minerality sits in reserve and keeps this honest. Best from 2008 through 2027.
