La Cremerie is one of the longest running natural wine bars in Paris.
Most of the wines here are either organic or non-interventionist and many are natural. There is a great selection, however the space is very small so you need to be patient if you want to find a table at which you can linger. Expect to find wines such as the Sierra du Sud from Domaine de Gramenon, the hefty, funky Clos Fantine from Faugeres, the refined l'Anglorre Comeyre from the Tavel region, the Lapierre Morgon along with a Terre des Chardons Clairette de Bellegarde.
We love the charcuterie, bread and cheese that they serve and can always find wines offered by the glass that go well with these foods.
We love ordering food that needs to be sliced because they have a stunning piece of 1936 machinery in the form of a hand-operated Berkel slicer. This is so important as modern electric slicers operate at such high speeds that the heat they generate denatures the fat in delicate meats such as jamon.
On our last visit we loved a Sebastien Riffault Sancerre and a wine from one of France's leading natural winemakers, the Domain du Moulin Cheverny les Ardilles.
