Never mind the high price, if you're looking for fine wines (especially French) and don't have much time, this is THE place! You can also buy en primeur.

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!
