Les bouchons

At the very tip of Brittany, in Cap Sizun that’s better known for its cider than its wines, naturophiles Yves Beautrix and Dominique Dubois are keeping local’s thirst quenched in their beautiful wine shop with arched ceilings. Come rifle through their low-intervention-guaranteed selection of wines: a Brouilly from Romuald Valot (€16 a bottle), a Burgundy Chardonnay from Alice and Olivier De Moor (€23), Selves, an Aveyron Chenin from Nicolas Carmarans (€26), Les Cessieux, a Saint-Joseph red from Hervé Souhaut (€27)… And as a bonus, a few beers with brews from Cantillon, Orval and Westvleteren, along with local, organic Tri Martolod and Poèm beers, and a handful spirits that come straight from the Distillerie Moby Dick from Plogoff. // Marcelle Ratafia 

The bullet-proof bottle: Les Cabotines, a 2017 Touraine Chenin from Ludovic Chanson (€19).
