Natural wine purists in Clermont? More like a small team that shares the same philosophy: healthy grapes above all else, without chemical additives! Le Quillosque is the property of Sir Harry Lester (the chef of the nearby Saint Eutrope, and winner of Le Fooding’s Best Bistrot of 2015 award), and it’s run by Victor Dos Santos (ex-Aux Crieurs de Vin in Troyes), flirting with no fewer than 900 naturalist labels, including many that come from Auvergne, and most of which are displayed on a shelf that runs the length of the wine shop. A random sampling: a Pineau-d’Aunis from Sébastien Bobinet, Chatons de Garde, an Ardèche Syrah from Andréa Calek, an Alsatian Pinot noir from Jean-Marc Dreyer, or La Vigne Sauvage, a Savoie Chasselas from David Humbert, all ranging in price from €14 to €20. But if you’re in the mood to go all out, Victor also has a 2013 Burgundy white from Yann Durieux (€110)! // Adrien Nouviaire 

The bullet-proof bottle: Peaches, an Australian white blend from the Manon winery (€26).
