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.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

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!
