Blanc & Rouge
81 Washington St.
between Front/York Sts.
A small wine shop serving the Dumbo neighborhood with a nicely chosen selection that favors French labels but also offers wines from around the world.
The store is charming, with wood-lined shelves and hand-written notes about the wines. The service is warm, welcoming and helpful, and many of the wines are very well priced, under $15 per bottle.
What to know:
They also sell wine glasses, have a chilled case with a selection of popular Champanges and white wines already cold, and they have shelves of travel and wine books in case you want to know more about where your wine is from before you buy it.
Their web site is an interesting e-commerce wine business that sells a selection that is considerably larger (and with a larger range of prices) than the shop's. The web site has free shipping to Manhattan and Brooklyn for orders over $200.
