No need to wait for the grape harvests to pay Didier Boisson a visit: running this cheeky natural wine shop (broken tile floors, bistro tables, bottles of wine everywhere you look), this former musician distributes joyful wines all year long, with something for every budget: Cayenne, a Fleurie from Julie Balagny (€27 a bottle), whose vineyard he had visited the day before we came to his shop; or more Beaujo’, like a 2014 Moncailleux from Michel Guignier (€25.60); an Aligoté from Alice and Olivier de Moor (€20); Sota mon Soleu, an Ardèche Merlot from Le Mas de l’Escarida (€12.90)… All of which can be popped open on the terrace (for a €10 corkage fee), so you have something to rinse down the snacks with: Portuguese Tricana sardines, duck rillettes from the Garrigou farm in the Tarn… // D.S.

The bullet-proof bottle: Les Pouches, a Loire Chenin from François-Saint-Lô, whose sister Justine (the co-author of the Pur Jus graphic novel) designed the label.
