Domaine Olivier Hillaire was created in 2006 when Olivier Hillaire bought part of the property from his father in law, Henri Boiron, who was the propietor of Domaine des Relagnes. Olivier Hillaire now owns 3 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape and 5 ha of Cotes du Rhone.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93-95
"Looking at his traditional cuvee, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of mostly Grenache) is a thick, massive effort that got a big “wow!” in the notes. Showing spectacular aromas and flavors of raspberry, spice, licorice and Provencal herbs, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, layers of sweet tannin and fantastic mid-palate depth. Fruit loaded and a hedonistic dream, it should dish out tons of pleasure over the coming decade."
