Many of you will recognise this brilliant Domaine as one of our perennial favourites and it's no wonder they've just had a great review on jancisrobinson.com, landing the coveted "wine of the week" slot.
Tim Ford is the CEO and is very much in charge of the business whilst the winemaker is Vincent Chansault. This guy is a serious talent, continually questioning and pushing winemaking to the very highest level - including an amazing 9 different vinification of a single parcel of Syrah, just to see how it would turn out!

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 every vintage, 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. 

Here we find Macabeu associated with Muscat d’Alexandrie for even more structure and richness whilst keeping its pure freshness.
