Madeleine Angevine:

A crossing between Madeleine Royale and Precoce de Malingre by the Vibert nursery at Angers (Loire), the seedling was obtained in 1857. Moreau-Robert, the successor to Vibert, commercialized it in 1863. It was given to Ray Barrington Brock by the ‘Pully’ viticultural institute in 1957. At his Research Station at Oxted in Surrey he propagated from it and sold vines to several English vineyards. Gillian Pearkes, the doyenne of English vinegrowers, grew and promoted the variety during the 1970s and 1980s. Not only is it a widely grown variety in its own right but has claim to fame as one of the parents of Siegerrebe.
