COATES & SEELY
Rosé Brut English Sparkling Wine
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay|
|Origin||United Kingdom, England|
Salmon pink in colour and beautifully aromatic (cranberries, strawberries and a touch of brioche) this is immediately appealing. The palate shows mid-weight red berry fruit and a lovely sherbet acidity which keeps the wine fresh and long in the mouth. Very impressive given that it comes from the Hampshire Downs and rivals many of its counterparts from over the channel. L&S (Jul 2011)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
I recommend Coates & Seely Rosé Brut NV English Sparkling wine which is made in Hampshire and goes very well with hot-smoked salmon with crème fraiche on crispbreadsVictoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Dec 2021)
The NV Brut Rosé offers abundant strawberry and wild cherry fruit on the nose, perhaps missing a little nuance but still appealing. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity. It continues in a fruit-forward style with strawberry and raspberry notes, a citric touch appearing toward the finish. Overall, this is a decent, commercial sparkling rosé to enjoy over the next 2–4 years. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 Rating: 88 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jul 2020)
Pretty salmon pink, red fruits are backed up by fresh red-apple aromas. A nice weighty mouthfeel, backed up by nice zesty freshness and good development, fine mousse and good clean finish. Attractive if not hugely complex. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Alistair Cooper MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2019)
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!
