  1. Most cavist who have their shops around a market will be opened on sunday morning. On saturday night they will close at 7. Wine and spirits can be found in supermarkets too, with extended hours, but you'll miss the advices.

        MtlChris probably knows rue Cler better than I do. But I've never seen a wine shop open on Sunday in my neighborhood -- this could be totally different in rue Cler, however. But the supermarket will not be open on Sunday, though some Monoprix are open until midnight on Saturday night.

          39, rue Cler, is open on Sundays 9:30 am to 1 pm.

          Le Repaire de Bacchus
          29, rue Cler
          is open 10 am to 1 pm on Sundays.

    2. La Derniere Goutte is open on sundays. It's the only quality wine shop I know that is.

        Second that. La Derniere Goutte isn't too far and it is a great shop. Juan is knowledgeable and passionate. He frequently has tasting on Saturdays and Sundays. If good wine is important it is definitely worth the trip. If you just want an ordinary bottle either of the two on Rue Cler will do.
