It's been ages since I've tried a Passe-Tout-Grains, so I can't really compare this facsimile to the original, but it's a pleasant and well-made wine. It could easily be mistaken for a 100% gamay wine, and all things considered, I still prefer my go-to pick of that genre from Malivoire, which also happens to be a bit cheaper.
