Reviews for 2006 Hillaire, Domaine Olivier Chateauneuf du Pape

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 2008
Very sappy with kirsch and raspberry fruit racing along licorice-tinged tannins. Long and driven with dark fruit black tea sweet tobacco and mineral extending the finish. Drink now through 2028. 650 cases made.

Fresh sexy bouquet of strawberry cherry minerals and garrigue Finely etched red berry flavors stain the palate braced by zesty minerals. A refined graceful wine that carries no excess weight and finishes with crackling minerality and a late note of blood orange. I underrated this last year.
