A wine shop with plenty of flair! That could be Olivier Gilbon’s motto, who has a handful of biologique (French for “organic”) bottles, quite a few biodynamic ones and plenty of natural wines (get the name now?) in his collection located in the Montorgueil neighborhood. A true wine lover, he gave up his digital agency in order to open this tiny haven, where each bottle is carefully displayed in a small wooden case. Come explore: a taut Gamay from Isabelle and Bruno Perraud (€20.50); a rare Loire folle blanche by Nicolas Reau (€14); or even a Bergerac Sauvignon skin-contact wine by Sylvain Jougla (€18.50). And to help you find your way around the shop, Olivier organizes his wines according to his personal inspirations: light, round or full-bodied reds, bright or buttery whites… What’s more, you can even leave with one of the book displayed on the wall in hand – Vigneronnes by Sandrine Goeyvaerts, Skin Contact by Alice Feiring, Mimi, Fifi et Glouglou by Michel Tolmer… // Théodule Mollard

The bullet-proof bottle: Les Manquants, a silky Anjou Cabernet franc produced by Sylvie Augereau (€32).
