Madeleine Angevine Wine Grape

Madeleine Angevine is a white  grape originally from the French Loire Valley. It is also popular in Germany, Kyrgyzstan and north western USA, but is also grown in Scandinavia. This early-ripening grape is a cross between Madeleine Royale and Précoce de Malingre, and the result is a grape well suited for cooler climates. Madeleine Angevine makes an attractive fruity wine with a flowery nose, similar to an Alsatian Pinot blanc. Its crisp, acid and dry wine pairs particularly well with seafoods.
