Deep in the Ardèche department, the well-traveled Charles Minot opened up a tiny wine shop to show off his collection of locally-grown, low intervention wines. What will you find inside? A few wooden shelves, wine-themed posters and loads of natural wine, with something for every budget: the incredibly rare Prospérité de l’Entreprise, a red from Daniel Sage (€28), Solo, a Grenache from La Ferme des Roumanes (€14), Est Ouest, a white blend from Thomas and Jean Ozil (€11), not to mention the vintages from Les Deux Terres, Gilles Azzoni or Le Mas de L’Escarida. But there’s also a Touraine pet’ nat’ from Lise and Bertrand Jousset (€17), a Champagne from Barbichon (€29), and even some Tarn eau-de-vie from Laurent Cazottes – tomato (€44) or Williams pear flavored (€62), to be precise… And whether the bottles come from near or a little farther away, they have all been thoughtfully sourced. // Gwen Jacquère
The bullet-proof bottle: Sère, a 2015 red from Richard Dal Canto (€14.50).
