wonderful wine shop next to Ulysse Cafe on Rue Cler owned by young expat American (from north Sacramento) who has good wines to fit your budget--accessible, friendly, casual no pressure to buy, informative
The wine shop owner was sampling champagne in front of his shop and we were waiting in line for crepes at the cafe next door. We had a couple of minutes before our food order was done so we tried the champagne. I typically find champagne too mineral/aluminum tasting but this French version was very tasty. The owner said the French save the best wine for their country and I agree.
We bought yummy wines here for several Eiffel Tower park picnics--cherished memories from our week in Paris.
