Pear and honeysuckle with a beautifully precise palate

Some Madeleine Angevines we’ve tried have been a little blurred round the edges and sadly undistinctive, but this is wonderfully precise, with pear and honeysuckle to the fore. 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. Danebury Vineyards is a privately owned estate located near Stockbridge, in the heart of Hampshire, on the paddocks of what was a famous nineteenth-century racehorse training yard. The vineyards cover seven acres of sheltered, south-facing fields on chalk and flint-stone soil. Their first vines were planted in 1988; the family has chosen to focus on limited production, following organic principles, which is reflected in the quality of the wine
