Caviste des cavistes! Three levels of wine with excellent coverage of France and good coverage of other countries as well. Superb aged Armagnac collection. This is a candy store for wine lovers.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

Hello, my French is not very good, so I'm doing it in English. I'm not in the wine merchant business myself, so I suggest you contact Lavinia directly about your case. Good luck!
