The Wine Merchant

It is not uncommon in France for the local wine shops to bear the name Caveau. Translated ‘small cellar’, Caveaus are as much a place to purchase wines as they are a destination to stop and taste. The best of these local merchants distinguish themselves by seeking out quality-conscious producers, back vintage bottlings, and rare cuvees not typically seen on the open market.
