"The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand comes from a parcel of Grenache originally planted at the end of the 19th century in a sandy part of La Crau. It's Hillaire's flagship, and it merits its status this vintage, where it shines with raspberry fruit and layers of dried spice complexity. It's full-bodied and rich yet silky, elegant and long on the finish, epitomizing the delicious contradictions that Grenache can present."

95 Wine Enthusiast

"Opulent black cherries and plums are perfumed by whiffs of rose petal, rosemary and mint in this hedonistic wine. Sourced from old-vine Grenache grown on sandy soils, it's lavish and silky on the palate and boasts a fresh mineral touch. Tannins are ripe but quite persistent now. It's irresistable now for its exuberant, youthful fruit but should gain savory complexities through 2030 and hold further. -AL"

95 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Vivid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes red fruit preserves, spicecake and incense, and a minerally element adds urgency. Impressively energetic on the palate, offering intense raspberry, cherry compote and lavender pastille flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. The floral note repeats emphatically on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves a smoky mineral note behind."
