Stunning. Simply stunning! The acidity is so electrifying, pure, and endless, with a beautifully balanced 9 grams of dosage, and a lingering hint of strawberries on the finish. This rates as one of England‘s greatest sparkling rosé wines.

Very pretty nose (and pale salmon pink)...Fun and nicely balanced. A very creditable, well-made addition to the swelling ranks of superior English fizzes or, as C&S would have it, Britagnes.

Elegant and engagingly scented, with notes of red berry fruit and a touch of honeycomb. Some bready, floral and earthy hints too. On the palate…a real vim and vigour to the fizz and the juicy flavours. Seamless. … Beats many a pink Champagne at their own game.

The nose is lovely and fragrant, crisp with an attractive mix of peach skin, wild strawberries and cranberries. The racy acidity on the start of the palate gives way to sweeter flavours lots of red fruits quite fleshy strawberry and some white peach. The long seamless delicate finish has a complex mix of refreshing flavours.95/100 points.

… a light salmon pink hue with a vibrant cherry and strawberry nose with tiny, fine bubbles. With its crisp lean profile and good depth of flavours, this is a serious sparkling … I highly recommend this elegant bubbly that combines both substance and lightness from Hampshire, England. 92 points.
Delightful, elegant English sparkling rose... It’s a pretty pale salmon, has lovely, fragrant raspberry fruit with a whisper of brioche in the background and zingy acidity, but not the tartness that sticks out like a sore thumb in some English sparkling wines.
A sumptuous, juicy and refreshing strawberry-filled rosé with mouth-watering crispness. 90 points.
Fresh, lively young wine with lush gentle strawberry flesh and a touch of sherbet balanced with taut appley acidity.
..an astonishing amount of fruit. Mainly strawberries…with a touch of zesty cranberry. There’s a hint of biscuit on the nose and palate,as well as racy acidity that carries the wine onto a lovely long, fresh finish.17/20 points.

This critically acclaimed English sparkling rosé, the first vintage from a revived vineyard in Hampshire, is a perfect demonstration of how we can now beat the French at their own game – a lovely pale-salmon-pink in colour, flavours of strawberries and raspberries and a stunning crispness. Supremely refined and a simply gorgeous celebration drink.

Another excellent newcomer ... with its fragrant nose of red berries and super-refreshing palate of crisp, sweet mulberry fruitiness stopped dead in its tracks by an underfoot cranberryish, sherbety tang.
Andrew Neather, Evening Standard
Drinkable English wine is sadly rare enough that honourable exceptions like this are worth taking notice of...This is an extremely creditable sparkler, a good deal more elegant than many cheaper rosé Champagnes: floral on the nose, fresh, crisp and full of redcurrant fruit.

I recently tasted Coates & Seely Brut Rose.. and found it thrilling - aromas are a stunning whirl of peach and citrus, with a pleasingly tart sherbert-like twist to the palate and zillions of tiny delicate bubbles.
Rose Murray Brown, The Scotsman
Considering its origin there is surprisingly rich ripe fruit and impressive pungent strawberry and raspberry aromas. The palate is very well-balanced with succulent ripe fruits and balancing firm acidity. A very impressive first effort.
David Williams, The Observer
Hugely impressive for its clarity and precision, with ripe redcurrants, singing acidity and tender mousse.
Adam Lechmere, Food & Travel Magazine
A very fine example of the best English Rosé. Aromas of honeysuckle, rosehip and hedgerow flowers (and a hint of cow parsley). Superb acidity.
Sunday Business Post
Full bodied…super aromatic…strawberry notes…a toasty mid-palate. The finish is sprightly,fruity and lean. The bubbles are perfectly tiny, while the mouth is full and refreshing. If it were from France it would command €50 or €60 with little controversy; in fact it is from Hampshire. This wine is one of the best English wines yet…

One of this year’s most important debuts is Coates & Seely Rose, a Pinot-based sparkling pink from vineyards in Hampshire near Nicholas Coates’s home.
