Du Vin et des Bulles
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Originally ‘Champagne et Collections’, owner Orlando Lacoffe has kept the spirit of the old store in its new incarnation as Du Vin et des Bulles – one of the best-stocked places in Paris for special-occasion bottles. The cave holds between 150 and 180 types of champagne, and over 700 wines and spirits in total. It concentrates on small and organic prducers, with a strong commitment to sustainable agriculture. Every third Thursday of the month, there are free tastings.
The shelves include the big names, of course: Drappier, Ruinart, Cristal and the rest. But allow yourself to be guided towards less well-known delights, better priced and just as good: A magnum of Jacquesson at €95, or a Dosnon-Lepage at €34 a bottle. House recommendations for bargains include a Gimonnet-Gonet, Côte des Blancs, 100% Chardonnay (€19) and a Moutardier Pinot-Meunier (€22).
What’s more, the boutique is busy developing a deli section for foie gras and other luxuries to go with your champagne. Cheers!
