Combining naturally leavened breads and natural wines? That’s the very natural idea behind this beautiful bakery tucked away in an old stone alley in Mirmande, a village of 600 inhabitants where the talented Vincent Gargneur keeps the locals happy with fine wines (Bock, Gramenon, Cunin) and artisan bread made with local flour (spelt, flax-sunflower, walnut-raisin, etc.). Chosen the day we went: a grandiose multigrain loaf with a perfectly crispy crust and a dense interior, perfect for dipping into Nyons olive oil (from the Domaine Saint-Vincent) or topped with local picodon cheese, all washed down with a bottle of wine from Le Clos des Mourres. // Gwen Jacquère
The hidden gem: The aforementioned multigrain bread (€8.90/kg).
