Madeleine Angevine is a white wine grape from the Loire Valley in France that is popular in the United Kingdom. The early-ripening grape is a cross between Madeleine Royale and de Malingre grapes a Riesling-type that grows well in cooler climates. Madeleine Angevine makes an attractive fruity wine with a flowery nose, similar to an Alsatian Pinot Blanc. It is crisp and dry, and pairs particularly well with seafoods such as scallops and oysters.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
The nose has peachy richness the palate hints of tropical fruits but there is underlying freshness Granny Smith apples and pink grapefruit. Breadth of flavour in the middle the fruit is ripe an attractive balance of flavours depth richness at the back with citrus and a hint of mineral on the finish (92 points)
