Wine Bars in Paris and Arcachon!

We´ve spent our last day in Paris, beside buying kitchen stuff in the extraordinary Chef shop "Dehillerin", in the Marais quarter. This old Jewish quarter is full with life and loads of small shops selling all different kind of things.
Lunch at Le Rubis: this is maybe the oldest wine bar in Paris ... at least it seems so. It looks like the time has come to a halt some 50 years ago. The plat du jour was warm sausage with lentils ... the wright food for men! The wine (Sancerre and Cotes du Rhone) was simple but a good choice for this kind of meal.
The other wine bar of this day was Willi´s. Ways different to Rubis but also nice. Good stemware, friendly and knowledgeable waiters and some glasses of Riesling, Bandon and Rhone wine closed a nearly perfect day (it was raining for some 30 minutes).
The TGV brought us in about 3 hours to Bordeaux and we spent the afternoon at the Dune du Pyla. Nothing has changed since my last visit ... still incredible and to celebrate the day we had "Glüh-" Champagne.
Enjoy the pics!

  1. Hi, I love reading your blog entries. I can almost feel the sand in my shoes and the bubbly in my glass... almost what a pity!

    All the best Bernhard

  2. Thanks! We had a great day at the Dune.
    Today was not bad as well as we have visited Pichon Baron and Cos d´Estournel!
