La Dernière Goutte

Terroir-driven, estate-bottled, organic and biodynamic wines from small producers are the specialty at this beloved shop, run for almost 20 years by Juan Sanchez. Especially strong in their selection of growers’ Champagnes and bottles from the Rhone Valley. Stop by on Saturdays for their free tastings with winemakers from 11am-7:30pm. Check our calendar of Paris food & wine events to find out which winemakers they’ll be hosting this week.

Reviews of interest

The Financial Times (2014) “But if I lived alone in Paris I would probably head for Juan Sanchez’s La Dernière Goutte on the Left Bank. It has the cosy air of a friendly club built around wine, open seven days a week with free tastings on Friday and Saturday, conducted in English as well as French. It was, incidentally, the only wine shop I visited where I was offered a taste.”

Lettie Teague (2012) “Saturday mornings are the best and worst times to visit the wine shop La Dernière Goutte: the best because there is inevitably a great free wine tasting taking place—and the worst, for the very same reason.”

Pierrick Jégu (2009) “…une sélection remarquable et affûtée en provenance du Languedoc, du Rhône, de Bourgogne, de Loire, d’Alsace et d’ailleurs…”

Dr Vino (2007) “a small but well-chosen selection of wines from the growers themselves, including Champagnes. He has weekly tastings with visiting producers on Saturday afternoons…”
