Comestibles et marchand de vins

A lively place with exceptional wines! That’s the motto of this cute wine bar (shelves filled with carefully sourced eats, wine posters, bottles everywhere you look), where Sébastien Arnaud has been spreading the gospel of good wine since 2013. From the roughly 550 labels that combine big names (Prieuré-Roch, Rayas, Amand Rousseau…) with lesser-known estates (Paul-Henry Pellé in Menetou-Salon, David Rey in the Languedoc, Mas Cal Demoura in the Larzac…), we took our pick of low-intervention wines the day we went: a very fine Riesling from Ostertag (€39 a bottle), a Savigny-lès-Beaune from Bruno Clair (€76) and L’Accomplie, a Champagne from winemaker Frédéric Savart (€55). And to sponge it all up: charcuterie (pistachio mortadella, pata negra…), truffled croque monsieurs or La Belle Îloise sardines, which you can dig into in house or take to go (Nemrod wild boar terrine, Le Tian Provençal cassoulet…). // Antoine Antoine 

The bullet-proof bottle: Ronceray, a 2018 Angevin white from the Domaine Belargus at €25.
