Who said it was hard to drink natural wines in the Maubert neighborhood? In her turquoise cave à manger just a stone’s throw from the Collège de France, the fabulous Clara Bonnier (a former sommelier at Sobre) casually unveils her impressive bottles. Grab something from the light wood shelves: a Jura Crémant from Fumey Chatelain (€19 a bottle), a Cahors by Maya Sallé from the Domaine La Calmette (€17), or the always fashionable Morgon Côte du Py by Jean Foillard (€33) and Meursault by Philippe Pacalet (€145), all of which can be uncorked in house for a €10 corkage fee. As for the food, there are easy to eat snacks: creamy stracciatella sprinkled with fish roe, freshly sliced Matanza ham, oysters with samphire and yuzu butter… // Wanda Wagner 

The bullet-proof bottle: Presented as a “picnic wine” by the owner, we’d opt for Fou Rire, a pet’ nat’ made with Black Muscat grapes, produced by the Ferme des Arnaud in the Vaucluse.
