There are some poisons we’re more willing to swallow than others! Especially those that Quentin Pierre-Antoine sells in his wine shop which sort of resembles a warehouse (concrete floors, metal shelves), which are guaranteed to be chemical-free, and sourced from producers with good intentions. And if his selection of over 150 labels clearly shows its southern colors, it’s simply because going directly to the vineyards requires him to source his wines locally … A random selection of his finds: a Braucol pet’ nat’ from the Tarn winery Vignereuse (€16 a bottle), a Roussillon Syrah-Cinsault blend from Pierre-Nicolas Massotte (€14), or S.L.T., a Lot blend of Syrah, Tannat and Cabernet-Franc produced by Muriel Zoldan near Montauban (€15). Because he’s the co-founder of Fat Cat, a classic cocktail bar in Toulouse, Quentin also has a collection of spirits: Buffalo Trace bourbon (€36), aged Montebello rum (€41-69), Bozal mezcal (€96)… // Auguste Marie

The bullet-proof bottle: Vertigo, a Roussillon Carignan from Wilfried Valat (€30).
