Cellar side

The texture, both firm and soft, and the richness of the cheesy notes of cream and Emmental, give this dish characteristics appreciated on the evening of a cold winter day. It calls for wines that are themselves powerful, but which should avoid being too round and sweet, otherwise the alliance will be heavy and difficult to digest.

With a young Cahors at the same time rich, dense but also fresh and invigorating with its tannins, we will bring depth to the accord and, paradoxically, a certain lightness while the cake will tame the still fiery temperament of the wine.

A Red st joseph, although more discreet on the palate, will enrich the aromatic complexity of the whole in a harmony going more in the direction of the dish.

Price ideas (in 2013):

About the potato

To preserve its nutritional qualities and optimize digestion, it is advisable to cook the potato whole in water or steam with its skin (vitamins and minerals preserved). The other methods of preparation, as greedy as they are, promote an increase in the glycemic index (grinding, cutting, cooking at high temperature ...) or increase its calories (frying ...).
