Domaine Girard has been passionate about their grape growing and wines for five generations. Located in the village of Alaigne in the southwestern corner of the Languedoc, the Girards respectfully take advantage of their vineyards by farming the land along sustainable practices.
The higher elevation vineyards which are located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, help to ensure a signature freshness and elegance throughout the range of wines. Domaine Girard produces a range or AOC and IGP wines that represent both cool climate characteristics and freshenss. As such, they make ideal partners to many different types of cuisine.
Domaine Girard Malepère Rouge
A Bordeaux blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a rarely seen AOC that sees no oak. If you think Languedoc cannot make wines with finesse, then you need to try this beautiful example of Malepère from Domaine Girard.
Domaine Girard Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is rarely successful in the Languedoc. However, the higher altitude of this vineyard permits more even ripening of the grapes, and thus avoids the jammy style that often occurs with this variety in the south of France. A terrific value in Pinot Noir that is true to form.
Domaine Girard Pays d'Oc Chardonnay
Medium bodied, with nuances of fresh picked apples, pears and without the influence of oak. Additional time spent on the lees impart richness to the wine, however not at the expense of freshness.
