Wine, Wine and more Wine

More restaurant questions for those on the ground in Paris:

1. Has anyone been to Il Vino yet? I've read a couple of things about it and the concept is very interesting to me (you pick the wine, they pick the food). Any impressions?

2. From what I have heard, it seems like much of the buzz around both L'Astrance and Senderens is that they have great, creative cuisine, but also that they go out of their way to match it with excellent wine. If I can't get into L'Astrance (and I'm taking this as a given), is Senderens a good alternative?

3. Recommendations for good wine shops around the 7th where I can buy a relatively cheap bottle for a picnic lunch?

Thanks much!!
