Ham & High

by Charles Lea

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

“I鈥檇 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, 拢6.95

and Vina Laguna 2011 Malvasia from Croatia, 拢9.95,

or Domaine Jean Royer Le Petit Roy, 拢13.75,

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

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