Madeleine Angevine is a white wine grape from the Loire Valley in France which 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.
A beautifully elegant wine reminiscent of an English orchard, Danebury’s Madeleine Angevine is utterly charming. The nose shows delicate aromas of white blossom, honeysuckle and pear whilst the flavours on the palate develop into notes of ripe quince and red apple. The texture is soft and rounded, balancing well with the fresh acidity whilst the mineral, clean finish nods to the Hampshire chalky soils on which the grapes were grown.
