In the testosterone-charged world of Rennes wine, Emeline Macé is shaking things up at Rewined, a wine shop filled with around a hundred labels, opened in the former Café-Théâtre Le Bacchus in 2019. In this bistro with marine blue walls, of which she kept the big timeworn mirror and copper fixtures, the former private chef and her accomplice Alan Floc’h, a former stage manager, pop open liberated wines. On the wooden shelves, the well-crafted bottles live harmoniously: Sex Symbole, a Loire white from Le Sot de l’Ange (€15.50 a bottle), a Burgundy Aligoté from Athénaïs de Béru (€25), Chemin Faisant, a Syrah from Jean Delobre (€33.70), a Poulsard from Jean-François Ganevat (€44)… Which you can drink in the company of a cheese and charcuterie platter (€8-9), yogurty polpette (€6) or other hot small plates, for the type of evening that you’ll be rewinding in your head come daybreak. // Rosa Poulsard

The bullet-proof bottle: Allez Goûtons, an Aligoté from Dominique Derain (€18).
