Winemaker Notes

From vines were planted in 1899 made from 100% Grenache from a tiny parcel with sandy soil in La Crau. Miniscule yields.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d’Armand (100% Grenache from sandy soils) exhibits sweet aromas of kirsch liqueur, tobacco leaf, spring flowers, licorice, and hints of truffles and incense. Deep, full-bodied, rich, and long, this is a superb success for the vintage. Consume it over the next 15+ years.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Dense but polished, with a great, creamy mouthfeel to the fig, black licorice, plum and currant preserve flavors, all followed by a very racy graphite edge on the long, intense finish. Has impressive drive. Drink now through 2028. 350 cases made.

Domaine Olivier Hillaire Winery Video
Before 2007 there was only one brasserie in the centre of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Mule du Pape. In 2007 Olivier Hillaire has purchaced the boulangerie on the other site of the street and runs here another brasserie. At lunch time you can meet him here serving the guests with the same engagement as he shows talking about his wines.

As Hillaire doesn't have his own cellars yet, his wines are aged in a big building in Sorgues former used to store apples. Several producers use this place, among them Henri Bonneau and André Brunel

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape is white. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.
