Domaine du Cagueloup's winemaking tradition has thrived for nearly 21 generations. Straddling the municipalities of Saint Cyr and la Cadière, the vineyard of Cagueloup tells the story of little Richard Prebost who once swallowed a gold coin, causing slight anxiety in his father. Panic-stricken, the father shouted, "Cague l'ou!" or "Spit it out!". From there is where the curious name of Cagueloup has its origins.
Lovely rose color with peach reflections, its nose is intense with notes of dried apricot and jasmine. The palate is ample and rich with a persistent freshness; well balanced with good length. To be enjoyed as an aperitif to start a meal; it is also an ideal companion to Provencal cuisine, such as rabbit with rosemary, grilled lamb with vine shoots, ratatouille, etc. (from the vintner)
