Green gold, saffron yellow, coral, vermillion, candy pink, blackcurrant purple… At Jean-Charles Halley’s place, there’s something to drink in every color of the rainbow! An important part of Normandy’s naturalism movement, his lair (blonde parquet floors, a few scattered books, bottles of wine everywhere) offers 500 labels to choose from, combining well-established winemakers (a Beaujolais Cuvée de Printemps from Sylvère Trichard for €13.50 a bottle, Dix Sept, a white from the Château Lestignac at €20.50…) with the major players of the future – Les Brumes, an Aveyron white from Pauline Broqua (€15.90), Avant la tempête, a Jacquère from Mathieu Apffel (€16.50), Les Amants Maudits, a Gard blend from Sébastien Chatillon (€25)… These carefully chosen bottles have a lot in common with the unfiltered charm of their owner, who always has a story to tell. // P.
The bullet-proof bottle: Le Clos des Carteries, a Cheverny Gamay / Pinot noir blend from Christian Venier (€15.90).
