Ham & High

by Charles Lea

Nice note from Liz Sagues in the Ham & High this week:-

“I’d planned to write about several more excellent independent merchants here, but there is room only for a quick focus on one, Lea & Sandeman (shops in Chelsea, Kensington, Barnes and Chiswick, online at www.leaandsandeman.co.uk). They sell fine burgundies and plenty of smart bottles from very carefully-chosen growers through Europe and beyond, but there is also wonderful value in the likes of these two fragrant, tempting whites, Domaine les Yeuses Vermentino 2011, £6.95

and Vina Laguna 2011 Malvasia from Croatia, £9.95,

or Domaine Jean Royer Le Petit Roy, £13.75,

Chateauneuf du Pape in everything but name and a truly happy wine.

Delivery over £100 is free, and there’s a case discount (even if you mix your own) of approximately 10 per cent.”
