Rouge Bouteille

Ever since 2012, Nicolas Prosper has been keeping the Zola neighborhood’s thirst quenched with his druidic juices at this stylish cave à manger (a blonde wood bar, bistro tables, metal shelving). And if he now spends a good part of his time creating stellar brews at his craft brewery (Baribale, located a few kilometers away), the natural wine selection is just as impressive as ever, featuring bottles from the Loire producer Jo Landron, the Rhone winemaker Matthieu Barret or the Jura viticulturists Michel-Henri and Françoise Ratte. Other finds that are worth checking out include the aged ports (like the 2015 Quinta do Tedo from Vincent Bouchard) and the micro-brewery beers (including those from the Brasserie du Grand Zig). And to sponge all that alcohol up, there are cheese and charcuterie platters or canned goods from La Compagnie Bretonne (which can also be taken to go). // Antoine Antoine 

The bullet-proof bottle: Consonance, a Pineau-d’Aunis and Cabernet-franc blend produced by Jonhatan Maunoury (€13.80).
