A blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier, it offers an attractive bouquet with hints of peaches and cream, well defined with more malic aromas surfacing with aeration. The palate has a soft, brioche-tinged entry that is cut with a tang of bitter lemon. Rating: 88 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Jun 2017)

Coates & Seely
Coates and Seely is the brainchild of Christian Seely and Nicholas Coates. The pair spent a year scouring Southern England for the ideal place to make excellent sparkling wine. In 2008 they found the Wooldings, tucked away in a secluded valley near Whitchurch, on the chalk downlands of Hampshire. “Near Winchester. Actually it’s closer to Basingstoke but Winchester sounds more romantic” says Seely jovially. The vineyards now total 24 hectares, and are planted with the Champagne varieties Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. They refurbished the original buildings, importing first-class winery equipment for winemaker Ryan Carter. Unlike most UK sparkling wine producers Coates & Seely are concentrating on Non Vintage wines - The Rosé was the first release; Blanc de Blancs then followed and in July 2015 their first vintage wines were released the Perfide Blanc de Blanc & Perfide Rosé 2009. All the wines carry the terms Méthode Britannique, and Britagne (pronounced Brit~an~ye) on the label, a testament to the quality and individuality of sparkling wines here that will at least rival their French neighbours!
Classy bubbles from the North Hampshire Downs with a lovely biscuit richness, grapefruit notes and tangy apple flavours. Delicious with smoked salmon. Jane Parkinson - Stylist Magazine (Jun 2017)
