Welcome to the Basin & Marot cellars! It’s been 24 years since Jean-Francois Basin, backed up by Lionel Bachelart, opened this treasure-packed wine shop, a long, narrow and unpretentious space located in the Châtelain neighborhood. You’ll find the moment’s highly-prized treasures produced by organic, biodynamic and natural winemakers, including: Foillard, Lapierre, Montcalmès, Dard et Ribo, Houillon and Overnoy, among others. Not to mention the transalpine compilation (Ampeleia, Elisabetta Foradori, Fratelli Barba) and bottles from Gudule, vinified in Brussels. And to mix things up a bit, there are also a few bears (including Cantillon, obviously!) and even some Lemasson hard cider, sourced straight from Normandy. // Alain Maes

The bullet-proof bottle: Coëf, a Loire red from Sébastien David (€27.70), a Cabernet franc aged for nine months in Italian amphora, which they’ve been proudly importing since 1999.
