Wine+ These beautiful rich flavours
remind us of Alpine mountain food. Gruyère is of course from Switzerland, so we’ve headed to Savoie, in the French foothills of the Alps, for a white wine to match the wonderful weighty flavours of Gruyère and Parma ham but have enough acidity to cut through the fat of the dish. The Wine Society do a wonderful Savoie-Chignin 2017
