We all know that our feathery new world friend can emerge from the furnace a touch on the bland side. The old bird's silver lining is a free rein when it comes to wine pairing. Whites or reds make excellent matches, particularly those that are packed with flavour.
Everyone likes to indulge in a special bottle or three over Christmas and the L&S team is no different. We've all squirrelled away something to savour and share with (appreciative!) friends and family. L&S Top Brass Charles Lea: I'm rather hoping to get a chance to raid the better end of my brother-in-law's cellar - the 2002 Vieux Château Certan was particularly memorable last time.
The saying goes that Christmas is a time to 'eat, drink and be merry', and this is certainly a mantra that we at Lea & Sandeman try to live by.
It that's time of year again and Champagne is back on the list of essentials. We've added our best possible prices to certain Grandes Marques champagnes as well as on one of our favourite Grower Champagnes: Barnaut Grande Réserve Brut (just £22.95 in a six pack).
