In this wine shop built from stones and wooden beams posted up under a hotel with views of the sea, Thomas Pavy discreetly supplies the Emerald Coast with well-chosen bottles of wine. After working as the manager of the Cheval Blanc restaurant in Courchevel, this lover of living wines cooked up a collection that explores France’s various regions, combining big and small names alike: Vin Pour Tous, a Melon from Burgundy produced by Yoann Gilot (€12), Les Agudes, a Cahors from Fabien Jouves (€12.90); a Montalban Sauvignon Blanc from Muriel Zoldan (€14), Mont Bayon, a 2010 Ségueret red from the Domaine du Pourra (€24)…. And from the area? Divona, a delightfully rustic cider from Johanna Cécillon (€8.90) or Domfront, a poiré from Jérôme Forget (€7.90). With all that, you’re unlikely to find yourself on dry land. // Henriette Ma

The bullet-proof bottle: First Flight, a Viognier from French-New Zealander winemakers Julie and Graeme Bott, which pairs easily with everything but still makes it mark (€21).
