After years of popping open bottles with their wine-loving dad, the Gurgui brothers (Lucas, a finance defector, and Robin, a sommelier at Mermoz) ended up building their own little wine haven at this pretty shop. On the shiny, zellige-covered central island or in the crates stacked from floor to ceiling, you’ll see bottles showing off their organic labels and even daring to be fully natural: a Gamay from the Domaine Guy Breton (€17 a bottle), an Anjou Chenin from Terra Vita Vinum (€22), a Gaillac Mauzac pet’ nat’ produced by Grégoire Aubrun (€17)… and in the middle of all that, a Saint-Émilion from David Favard (€95). Their selection is complemented by a few references from local distillers and brewers, like the Sacrilège group that ages its beers with Pic Saint-Loup marc de Syrah (€9 for 750 ml). All you need for a trip down the bottleneck! // Pica Bidon 

The bullet-proof bottle: Céline, the first Jura vintage from Charlotte and Cyril Delval, aka a macerated Pinot gris that’s a cross between an orange wine and a rosé (€24).
