Recommendations for Wine stores in Nice?

I am spending the summer in VilleFranche, which has only supermarket wine. I need to find a store in Nice that has great quality and variety. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks in advance.

  1. My two fave cavs à vin are also in lovely 'hoods:
    - La Belle Cave on rue Bavastro in the old port,
    - Cave Caprioglio on rue de la Préfecture, in the old town.
    The latter , in a somewhat hectic hood, is in a very photogenic space. The cavistes are very helpful
    The former has ver good wines and is less expensive, but is less user-friendly. The staff is nevertheless very friendly, serving a local clientele.

      1. 10, Rue Gioffredo. I bought three bottles there on Antoine's recommendation and was very pleased with them. He seemed gracious and knowledgeable--also serves good food and music according to what I read.
