When I was but a lad growing up above a pub in Co. Wexford, the two days in the year when the pub wasn’t open were Christmas Day and Good Friday. It meant no packing shelves, no cleaning ashtrays and it meant my father got a rare day off. I thought that was why it was called “Good” Friday…ah the innocence of youth!
Of course we are closed on Good Friday, but we will be open as always on Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday and then closed again on the Bank Holiday.
Easter is always a time to think of the new spring lambs bouncing gaily in the fields….with that in mind I have put together an offer of wines to go with lamb.
is, of course, the perfect match, and
what could make it taste even sweeter? Bordeaux
20% off, that’s what.
I have also picked one of our favourite whites in the shop Domaine Reverdy Sancerre – don’t be fooled by the pretenders in Sancerre – this is the real deal – concentrated, fresh and mineral, amazing wine. And then we have the Lanzos red and white – easy, gluggable wines from
that are great value at their
normal price, let alone with 20% off. Spain
So here is our April offer – buy any 6 (can be mixed) of the following to get 20% off:
Chateau La Brande, Cotes de Castillon – this is our smart buy from
’s right bank. The vines are across the
road from the more swanky Saint Emilion Grand Cru, the wine gets exactly the
same careful treatment and yet it sells for a fraction of its more illustrious
big brother. RRP - €16 – April 6 btl price €12.80 Bordeaux
Domaine Reverdy Sancerre – crisp, bone dry, elegant, concentrated with a long mineral finish, this is definitive Sancerre. RRP €20 – down to €16.
Lanzos Tempranillo – soft, juicy, fruity Tempranillo. As a bonus, it has sheep on the label so you can feel extra guilty munching on your Spring lamb! RRP €11 – down to €8.80
Lanzos Sauvignon Blanc/Viura – aromatic, fresh and fruity with real character. RRP €11 – down to €8.80.
Hope to see you soon.
