Domaine Olivier Hillaire 2017 Les Terrasses Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

A study of varietal Grenache sourced entirely from pebbly soils (as opposed to the safre of the producer's Les Petits Pieds d'Armand), this rich, muscular wine is packed with ripe, black cherry and cassis flavors. Matured 15 months in old barriques, it's framed by fine, integrated tannins and lingering hints of green olive and green peppercorn. A bit tightly wound in youth but should approach peak from 2022 and develop nicely well past 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
