Charlemagne Wine Club - 2012 Tastings
Monday 19th November 2012
Sparkling and Party wines
It’s almost inevitable that in contemplation of approaching Christmas celebrations,
the wine mind would naturally turn to Champagne? But where to buy it? From your
local London Wine Merchant of the Year 2012, of course! Lea and Sandeman have been
recognised for the fourth year in a row as THE place to go, by the International
Wine Challenge judges, and one of their specialities is growers’ champagnes.
If you haven’t already visited their shops in Chelsea, Kensington, Barnes or Chiswick then you really should. You just can’t browse without being seduced by a gloriously interesting bottle! As they say themselves,“Lea & Sandeman is about wine with personality. Our search for quality has led us to producers who work for the best expression of terroir and grape varieties, with the minimum of intervention, resulting in wines which are not only refreshing, but also uplifting to drink.”
With over 50 different Sparkling wines to select from, Andrew Hooper will show the breadth of styles available from their Grower and Grande Marque Champagnes together with a quality Sparkling Wine from our side of the Channel. On show as well, will be still wines with particular links to the founders of the company, Charles Lea and the late Patrick Sandeman.
