Wine merchant Rebecca Robine doesn’t need to make any offerings to Dionysus to keep her Douarnenez patrons’ thirst quenched. In her lair just a stone’s throw from Les Halles, this farmers’ daughter (who used to work at the wine bar Monsieur Henri in Paris) welcomes customers in with plenty of joy and judicious advice, and best of all, an impressive selection of clean wines, combining explosively flavorful bottles from small winemakers (like Roupillon, a Luberon Syrah from Alexandre Dalet for €15 a bottle) with vintages from well-established winemakers – like Entremêlés, a Loire Orbois-Chenin blend from Valérie Forgues (€19). In short, good wines for Armoricans along the Atlantic Coast. // Lola Tobelem 

The bullet-proof bottle: Le Chemin, an Aude Carignan produced by Édouard Fortin at the Domaine des Quatre Pierre (€13).
