The Altitude Cent neighborhood certainly has us chugging ‘em back! Joining the neighborhood’s rather fine peloton of glug-glug-gluggers (Mangiavino, L’Altitude, Lombric), Stappa and its mountain of wines is taking the locals’ thirsts to new heights. Alongside vinos that Grégoire Thibault (ex-Certo) brings back from the Boot (Tenuta Foresto, Alex della Vecchia, Il Ceo, Tanca Nica, Sete…), you’ll find a range that gives top billing to some surprising Frenchies (Romuald and Cosima Valot in the Beaujolais, Les Ânes Ailés in Banyuls, Pierre-Gilles Euzen in Anjou, Thomas Jacquin in the Jura), plus Eastern bottles (Claus Preisinger, Madame Flöck), and hard apple or pear ciders – Johanna Cécillon, I hear you say? A flawless selection at reasonable prices – get glugging! // Toni Negroni

THE BULLET-PROOF BOTTLE: Après la Pluie, a delicious Loire grolleau mischievously vinified by Simon Rouillard (€24).
