Les inséparables

In a neighborhood with depressingly few thirst-quenching options, Thierry Fortesa (a former business lawyer) traded in the bar for the wine world by opening this Swiss army knife of a wine shop in June of 2020, that combines natural wines, sourdough breads from Anthony Boisson and raw milk cheeses. But let’s get back to the boss’s wine selection, which sweeps through the various regions of France (a Languedoc blend from Yohann Moreno for €15 a bottle, an Angevin Pineau-d’Aunis from Bertin-Delatte for €19, a Ploussard from the Domaine de la Borde at €28 a bottle…), while also including the big names of the low-intervention wine game: Rousset-Martin, Villemade, Riffault, Riberach, Bobinet… Plenty to take your apéros to the next level, especially if you leave with some organic Lingot de Cocagne, Brin d’Amour or Figou cheese, so you’ve got something to sponge it all up with! // Antoine Antoine 

The bullet-proof bottle: Natur, a Muscadet from the Greek Thetramythos estate (€23).
