A wine shop with plenty of gas in the tank! Very Good has plenty to keep your thirst quenched with 1,200 labels to browse through, cleverly selected for the last decade by Patrick Moysan, the guru of this 150 m2 space located a stone’s throw from the former shipyard. There’s a cutting-edge selection of naturophile wines for every budget, where you’ll find the big shots of Muscadet (Papin, Landron, Braud), the local newbies (Yoann Gillot, Maïté Perrocheau and Warren Truchon) and friends from further away (Henri Milan in Provence, Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura, Mas de Libian in Ardèche…). And as if that weren’t enough, Patrick doubled down in 2018 by opening a second boutique in the city center, where you will find more or less the same selection of bottles. The latest piece of good news? It’s possible to make group purchases at prices usually reserved for professionals (for orders of sixty bottles or more)! // A.A.
The bullet-proof bottle: Mon tout rouge, a Tours wine from Olivier Bellanger (€13).
