You’ll find a lot of good wine bars in Paris, but if you are looking to have excellent food with your glass of wine, here is my top 5 wine list.
Les Fines Gueules
Address: 43 rue Croix des Petits Champs (+33 1 42 61 35 41) – Open daily
Cost: €45pp, with two glasses of wine.
Located in a handsome 18th century stone house, this mini wine bar/bistro sources its menu from the best producers in Paris, including the star butcher Hugo Desnoyer. It offers delicious meals and a good selection of ‘natural’ and organic wines.
Located near the Louvre, Les Fines Gueules has a fine setting
Frenchie Bar à Vins
Address: 6 rue du Nil (No phone, no reservations) – Closed Saturday and Sunday
Cost: €40pp, with two glasses of wine
Annex to his bistro Frenchie, the chef Gregory Marchand’s Wine Bar offers the opportunity to taste his food without having to book a table at his restaurant. The wine list of sommelier Laura Vidal is one of the most interesting in Paris at the moment.

This friendly place, one of the best wine bars in Paris, offers a lot of well-chosen local wines at all price levels, and for all tastes: light, robust, round, fruity, dry, sweet.

The friendly Chef of the Bon Coin
Address: 30 rue Gay-Lussac (+ 33 1 43 25 20 79) – Closed Sunday and Monday

This bistrot à vins has become a Latin Quarter institution. The population is often international and academic, drawn to this great wine bar in Paris. You can either arrive at noon for a glass of wine and a bite, or reserve a table to have dinner and taste the delicious €33 that Chef Ulric Claude offers.
The wine bar of Les Papilles
Le Lèche Vin
