Jancis Robinson for The Financial Times (2014) “The granddaddy of all Parisian wine retailers, Legrand Filles et Fils, near the Banque de France, opened a chic wine bar back in 2002 and this is still a great place to drink fine wine from all over the world by the glass with the cheese and charcuterie that have become de rigueur.”

Le Figaro (2010) “Cœur du réacteur : le grand et digne bar semi-circulaire où les sommeliers servent leur sélection de 5 rouges et 5 blancs (comme les cinq jours de la semaine !) renouvelés régulièrement. Ici est représenté le meilleur des grands classiques du Bordelais et de la Bourgogne, dont la liste ne varie pas.”

Wine Terroirs (2004) “There’s a warm and refined atmosphere at the same time, with the brass and the wood of the floor, the floor-to-ceiling shelves and ladders…While not the cheapest wine bar for its glass prices, it is a good place to enjoy and discover wines…”
