The wine present would have had to pair well with traditional Seder fare, which includes: maror or chazeret, a type of bitter herb; charoset, a sweet, brown, pebbly paste of fruits and nuts; karpas, a vegetable (usually parsley or celery) that is dipped into salt water before eating; zeroa, a roasted lamb shank bone or chicken wing; and beitzah, a hard-boiled egg.

The recession is well and truly over lads. Just got this wrong number text:

Good Afternoon, I tried calling you earlier. In reply to your call earlier regarding Lafite 2012. I will hold the price I offered to you last year. €2310 per case of 6 bottles. Let me know. Regards.

In fairness, it’s cheaper than last year.
