Madeleine Angevine, or Madeleine x Angevine 7672, is a green grape originally from the French Loire Valley. It is said to be created by Pierre Vibert at the Moreau-Robert nurseries as early as in 1857. It is still grown in Loire, but also popular in Germany, Kyrgyzstan, the UK and north-western USA, and lately 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 Alsatian Pinot blanc. Its crisp, acid and dry wine pairs particularly well with seafoods.
