Domaine Girard - Pinot Noir 2020 Pays d'Oc
This Pinot Noir comes from clay-silt slopes planted with vines that are about thirty years old. It is vinified and aged in vats. The palate is lively and light, with notes of tomato, dried herbs and a touch of strawberry. The tannins are firm, the wine is soft and fresh.
Located in the commune of Alaigne, in the heart of the Malepère appellation, the Girard estate now covers nearly 30 hectares. It benefits from conditions favorable to the production of fresh and typical wines: altitude, Mediterranean micro-climate with oceanic influence, and splendid exposure. Philippe and Jean-François Girard took over the torch from 4 generations of winegrowers in the early 2000s. They favour terroir and quality over quantity, and they have adopted a "zero herbicide" approach.
