Vingt sur Vingt for Vins sur Vans! This wine shop that really explores the terroir earns a perfect score from us, especially since the only thing the owner cares about is the quality of the wine he sells. The man in charge of quenching your thirst? Christian Brasseur (ex-V. Marchand de Vins in Montpellier), who returned home to the rural Ardèche department back in 2016, where he took over this bastion of the Cévennes wine scene so he could pour wines from the Calek, Bock and Azzoni wineries, just to name a few. Local naturalist winemakers rub shoulders with wines from a little further away: B de Bain, a Beaujolais red (€29 a bottle), Amphibolite, a Muscadet produced by Landron (€14.50), Pom’N Roll produced by Gombaude-Guillot (€36), a Pommard from Pacalet (€135)… And if you’re feeling peckish? There’s tapenade from Jocelyn Vigouroux or olive oil from Le Pigeonnier in Payzac, to get the apéro started on the right note. Another point in this place’s favor? The Southern gins distilled using natural grapes! // Antoine Antoine

The bullet-proof bottle: The red Zig-Zag des Deux Terres (€12.20 a bottle).
