Located right in the middle of the bustling Rue Daguerre, you can't miss the lemon-yellow frontage of La Cave des Papilles. The owner, a lover of 'natural' wine, has been operating in Paris for 16 years, and of the 1200 wines on offer, 80% are produced organically, while the rest are more traditional. The owner knows each supplier personally, most of them independent French wine growers (Frédéric Cossard in Burgundy, la Maison Pierre Overnoy in the Jura and Jean-Yves Perron in Savoy, to name a few). Lovers of bubbles can find a good selection of champagnes (e.g. Emmanuel Lassaigne, or a very sought after one by Vincent Laval), plus magnums and spirits (whiskies, cognacs, armagnacs).
La Cave des Papilles itself has a hand in certain vintages, particularly during the blending stage (l’assemblage), producing bottles under the Cave des Papilles brand. It's not outrageously priced either: with a choice of 60 to 80 bottles between €3 and €10 Euros, even the strapped for cash will leave happy.
