wine bar around Bastille

I am looking for some recommendations on this - especially to break the (often annoyingly strong - at least in Paris) link between price and quality.

However, I have never been to this neighbourhood before.

(Most of my company speak French, that is no problem, Paris is just not home ground from any of us).

      Despite its reputation as a brasserie, and I will confess it's been a number of years for me, I seem to recall Bofinger as having a nice selection of wines by the glass.

        Along with Le Baron Rouge at Place Aligrè, On Ave Leon Trot just off Rue Charonne is
        Jacques Melac, warm friendly, few Americans, 30-40 wines by glass. Decent food and a good time.
