2018 Domaine Olivier Hillaire "Les Terrasses" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1544969 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Like his other cuvées, this has quite a pale, cherry-tinged colour with strawberry and a touch of sweetly earthy beetroot on the nose and sweet strawberry on the palate. It's an enjoyably low-extraction style, brimming with plump, juicy strawberry and a touch of caramel in the background. This is good now, and will be good with age too. Distinctive. (MW) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

Outer quote mark Based on 100% Grenache sourced from the southeastern sector of the appellation, the 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Terrasses offers a rocking bouquet of ripe strawberry and assorted berry fruits intermixed with lots of peppery garrigue, spice, and candied flower-like aromatics. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a beautifully seamless, elegant texture and sweet tannins, this is one sexy Grenache to enjoy over the coming 8-10 years. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark It's rather light in color, with delicate scents of red berries, moss and sous-bois, then delivers waves of raspberries and cherries on the full-bodied, silky-textured palate. There is a touch of warmth here, particularly on the finish, so keep it in mind if that's a particular sensitivity. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
