It’s already been eight years since Aveyron-native Philippe Cuq revived this wine haven located next to the Père-Lachaise cemetery. He fell into the barrel at a young age, and ever since, this pioneer of living wines has built a collection of nearly 800 carefully-sourced labels, always making sure to have something for every budget: Vers les Alpes, a Chignin from Jean-François Quénard (€10.50 a bottle), Hanami, a Saumur-Champigny from Sébastien Bobinet (€16.60 a bottle), a Côtes à Côtes Jura Trousseau / Pinot noir from the Domaine de la Touraize (€18.80), Vieille Marsanne, an Ardèche wine from Éric Texier (€30) or, for something less obscure, Mareotis, a Drôme red from Philippe Viret (€34.50). So many star vintages that the owner really knows how to make shine. // Ninsu 

The bullet-proof bottle: An incredibly rare Nita red from the Georgian estate Ori Marani, run by the Champagne expat Bastien Warskotte (€31).
