Coates & Seely Britagne Brut Reserve NV

Comprised of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a pinch of Pinot Meunier, the fruit is very citrus, particularly grapefruit, and with lots of lift. Good intensity and persistence.  Aged in the bottle on its lees for 3 years, the same minimum period for vintage Champagne. This English Sparkling is from Hampshire and one of the owners is Christian Seely, the CEO of AXA Millesimes – the wine arm of insurance giant AXA – which properties include  Pauillac’s Chateau Pichon Baron and Chateau Pibran, Pomerol’s Chateau Petit-Village, Suduiraut of Sauternes, Quinta do Noval, Disznoko Tokaji, Domaine de l’Arlot in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and Napa Valley’s Outpost Wines.
