En Passant Blanc

En Passant Rouge
The latest addition to the estate’s collection is a limited edition range designed as an ode to Domaine Gayda’s spirit of creativity and inventiveness.
Inspired by The Passenger, the classic pop-rock anthem by Iggy Pop, its inherently restless character is expressed through a red and a white wine that are made from a different vineyard, terroir and grape variety each year, underscoring its ephemeral nature. This ‘rolling stone’ concept is clearly mirrored in the labelling of En Passant with constantly changing imagery designed as a storyboard, through the vintages.

Our quest for taste continues through this new blend. Here we find Macabeu associated with Muscat d’Alexandrie for even more structure and richness whilst keeping its pure freshness.
