This is the story of a mother and her son: the former, Mirielle Langlois, set up shop in the Haut Marais neighborhood in 2016, driven by her belief in natural winemaking; the latter, Gabriel, decided to join her in order to hunt down the best wines made in mainland France… And that’s how Delicatessen was born, one of the capital’s most iconic wine shops! In this Ali-Baba-esque cave that feels like a cozy library, bottles by star winemakers (Sage, Overnoy, Bornard, Métras and Labet) rub shoulders with less well-established vintages – like a Burgundy Chardonnay from Fanny Sabre (€19.50), Haut les Coeurs, a Luberon red from Les Maoù (€15)… A special mention for the bubbly selection, and also for the hand-selected cheeses, charcuterie and oils. And to keep the fun going longer, the wine bar by the same name sends wines of the same caliber to the other side of the street, where you can sponge them up with lovely cold plates. // S.S.
The bullet-proof bottle: Soho, an Angevin blend of Sauvignon and Pineau-d’aunis produced by Jean-Christophe Garnier (€15.50).
