Back from their wine-motivated tour of France, Derick Rocha (ex-Septime and Dilia) and his friend Étienne Aubron brought a naturalist wine shop in the QuizeVingts neighborhood to life in October of 2021. What should you expect? Rock walls, beautiful wood details, and a terroir-centric ambiance where wine barrels act as tables and invite you to stand around them, a glass in hand and olives on your tongue – or smoked beef cecina, ricotta from Nanina, cheeses from La Fromagerie Goncourt… And what about the bottles, you ask? There’s plenty to quench your thirst, with around a hundred different labels: Le Grappin, a Mâcon villages (€7.50 a glass), L’Oiseau Orange, a macerated Hérault wine from Le Mas Foulaquier (€27 a bottle), a Burgundy Gamay from La Soeur Cadette (€19)… // Albert Gredinbar 

The bullet-proof bottle: Tonnerre de Grès, a Jacquère-Altesse blend from Marie and Florian Curtet (€25 a bottle).
