Next stop, sparkling wine in the English countryside!

In 2008, two old friends--Nicholas Coates and Christian Seely--embarked on a quest. Between them, they had successful careers in finance and winemaking, an unshakeable belief and a burning desire to make a sparkling wine to rival the best in the world. Their adventure drew them to the ancient chalk downlands of Hampshire, in Southern England, to a secluded valley nestled quietly in the hills where the chalk soils and south-facing slopes presented the perfect terroir. They planted vines and began their craft. The fruit that emerges contains the perfect balance of crisp acidity and sweet fruit as well as the saline minerality that lie at the heart of all great sparkling wine. They would call their sparkling wine ‘Coates & Seely.'

A decade later, their sparkling wines are listed in royal palaces, Michelin-starred restaurants and iconic houses around the world, and have won Gold Medals and Trophies in all of the leading national and international wine competitions. In 2017, their wines were voted Best Overall Wine, Best Sparkling Wine, Best Blanc de Blancs and Best Sparkling Rosé in the UK Wine Awards. In 2019, their 2009 Blanc de Blancs ‘La Perfide’ won the International IWSC Trophy for Best Bottle Fermented Sparkling Wine. They are still the only English wine to be listed at the George V in Paris.

Produced using traditional methods and the classic varieties, the Brut Reserve is produced using the playful phrase “methode Britannique." Coates & Seely seamlessly combine the beauty and traditions of England with the craftsmanship and latest technologies available to produce their world-class sparkling wines.

The Brut Reserve is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Meunier with reserves from previous years and lees-aged for 2½ to 3 years to give depth and complexity. The wine is only released after a further 6-12 months on cork. It won the 'Best in Show' Trophy in 2022’s Decanter World Wine Awards with a Platinum medal and a score of 97 points.

It’s pale gold in colour, with a steady stream of fine bubbles; aromatically you’ll find ultra-freshness and a distinctive sappy cool infusing the shy orchard fruits, like a sniff of an early spring morning before the mist has lifted. It’s taut, tight and stony on the palate — but the quality of the fruit, teased to ripeness over the long-houred English summer, is there for all to taste.

Extremely pretty apple and lemon-curd aromas with some honey-dew melon undertones. Hints of bread dough. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit, a layered texture and a creamy finish. Fruity, yet tight and focused.
