2017 Michel Lynch AOC Bordeaux

As we approach St Patrick’s day we’re celebrating with a recommendation for both the grape and the grain.

2017 Michel Lynch AOC Bordeaux €14.49

“Wine Geese” is the name for emigrant Irish families who in the 17th century were involved in wine production in France. Thomas Lynch Fitz-Ambrose was Mayor of Galway in 1654, his son Thomas emigrated to Bordeaux and became the owner of Château Lynch Bages. Today owned by the Cazes family, who produce this wine, named to honour the Lynch family.

This lovely Bordeaux red is soft and easy drinking. Available in Dunnes Stores, Super Valu, Centra, Carry Out and Independent off-licenses.

Powers White Label €30

The first Irish coffee was created on a winter’s night in 1943. Bad weather hit a flight to New York, forcing it to turn back to Foynes Airport in Co. Limerick. As staff prepared for the passengers’ arrival, Chef Joe Sheridan put a little something extra in the coffees of the incoming passengers.

With a splash of Powers Whiskey, topped with a hefty dollop of lightly whipped cream, Chef Sheridan created a legend.

Powers White Label is widely available.
