Natural, living, artisanal wines… What you call them doesn’t matter, so long as you know where they’re from! At his wine shop opened in 2019 in the heart of the Camas neighborhood, Andorra-native Thomas Babot called upon the big shots of southern natural wine (Jean-François Coutelou, Olivier Cohen, Anthony Tortul…) and even unearthed a few rare gems – including a Merlot from the Domaine de l’Or Vert (€14) in the Luberon department. And for curious, exploratory palates, there are carefully chosen wines from elsewhere (Kevin Bouillet in the Jura, Jean-Pierre Robinot in the Sarthe, Frédéric Gounan in Auvergne…) along with a few craft beers (BAA, Lug). Our ultimate tip: the boss, who trained in Barcelona, also offers up some lovely Catalan snacks – chorizo, fuet sausage, Espinaler canned goods… // A.A. 

The bullet-proof bottle: Chattemite, a white from Alexandre Dalet (€13).
