You’ll be in good hands here: owner and chief sommelier Antoine Rouland commands 13 years of experience and, with co-founder Marie-Charlotte Ley, handpicks Old World wines from independent winemakers and producers on their regular trips to France – which means controlled yields of favourites such as the 2015 Domaine du Tariquet Classic ($9/glass, $42/bottle), which is also stocked at Ô Comptoir, its sister cider bar and crêpe bistro.
The vino is replenished every day to ensure you’re getting the stuff in top-notch condition, and prices start at around $8 a glass and $38 a bottle. If a sparkling’s more up your alley, the Marguerite Guyot Cuvée Passion, Champagne AOC ($130/bottle) will do the trick. And don’t forget to sample French vino from different regions by signing up for one of Ô Batignolles’ monthly wine tastings.
