About En Passant Vin Blanc
En Passant Vin Blanc is a bright and expressive blend of organic Chardonnay and Viognier. Lush citrus and melon fruit with bright acidity on the finish. 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 is made from a different vineyard, terroir, and grape variety each year, underscoring its ephemeral nature. This ‘rolling stone’ concept is clearly mirrored in the labeling of En Passant with constantly changing imagery designed as a storyboard, through the vintages.
About Domaine Gayda
Domaine Gayda was built in 1749 as a staging post for travelers where horses were refreshed and changed. The farm buildings have since been converted into luxury accommodation. Owners Tim Ford and Anthony Record joined forces with winemaker Vincent Chansault in 2004, creating the modern face of wine from the region.
On the site of the famous “l’arbre de Moscou”, we built the winery, restaurant, and Boutique. This iconic tree got its name from the land registry title of the vineyards surrounding the Domaine. The tree was a navigation beacon used by the ‘Aeropostale’ pioneers of the air postal service made famous by pilots such as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Domaine Gayda has a passion for the traditional ‘cépages’ grown across the many diverse soils and climates situated throughout the Languedoc. Also, varietals such as Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc have been planted at the home farm where the climatic influences of the Atlantic allow these imported varieties to flourish While the vineyards are firmly rooted in tradition and “terroirs”, the winery itself is all about the innovation, with investments in all the latest equipment and technology ensuring vinification and maturation is carried out in optimum conditions.
In the largest wine region of the world, Domaine Gayda strives to create a wine with provenance and a sense of “being” that is a true reflection of the quality and diversity of the Languedoc-Roussillon.
