Best sparkling Blanc de Blancs

Coates & Seely ‘La Per­fide’ Blanc de Blancs 2009

Country Life Every Week - - Out & About: Chelsea Flower Show 2017 -

‘Fab­u­lously el­e­gant and refined with the se­duc­tive toasted brioche and honey notes of age’

Coates & Seely, based near Whitchurch in Hamp­shire, is ‘ded­i­cated solely to the pur­suit of ex­cel­lence, not size,’ ac­cord­ing to co-founder Ni­cholas Coates. Since 2009, he and busi­ness part­ner Chris­tian Seely have been cre­at­ing vin­tage wines only in ex­cep­tional years; its pri­mary fo­cus is on de­vel­op­ing the high­est pos­si­ble qual­ity non-vin­tage sparkling wines on a con­sis­tent ba­sis. This is one of the com­pany’s first wines and is 100% Chardon­nay. Coates & Seely is the only English sparkling wine served at Good­wood. £65, www.coate­sand­seely.com
