Madeleine Angevine


Madeleine Angevine is a white wine grape from the Loire Valley in France that is also popular in the United Kingdom, Germany, Kyrgyzstan and Washington State. The early-ripening grape is a cross between Madeleine Royale and Précoce de Malingre grapes and is 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, acid and dry and pairs particularly well with seafoods such as crab and oyster.

Madeleine Angevine was crossed with Silvaner Geilweilerhof to make the Noblessa and Forta grapes. It was crossed with Traminer to make the Comtessa grape.

In Washington State, the grape has developed a cult following in the Puzet Sound region for its floral character and easy drinking nature. Madeleine Angevine is superbly adapted to western Washington's cool dry summers and many local vineyards feature wine made from the grape such as Lopez Island Vineyards, Bainbridge Island Vineyards, Eagle Haven Winery, San Juan Vineyards, Whidbey Island Vineyard & Winery, Comforts of Whidbey, and Greenbank Cellars.
