With a tartiflette, we recommend:

Tartiflette: which wine to serve with a wine-based dish?

The tartiflette is an inexpensive dish that feeds its man, we tend to think that with a rustic dish we can serve almost any wine... Error! The richness of the tartiflette and its flavour requires very aromatic wines. We really recommend white wines, with enough power to exist alongside the tartiflette, their youth will be an asset. These wines must also be very fresh to balance the richness of the tartiflette.

The ideal appellations with a tartiflette

To taste this dish with a Savoyard reblochon, Savoyard wines are popular: Jongieux-Blanc, Roussette and Chignin-Bergeron de Savoie will go perfectly with the tartiflette and its cheese. To be sure to have the ideal aromatic power Les Grappes also recommends the white wines of the Rhône Valley: Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Crozes-Hermitage, as well as Saint-Joseph


The tartiflette: white wine on the plate

Bacon, cream, potatoes, onions, reblochon, of course, and white wine! Raclette and wine are not only a love story in the glass, but also on the plate. Explosions of flavours, saltiness, sweetness and fat, the tartiflette does not lack taste. It shines after a day spent in the cold, a real "hit" in high-altitude restaurants, the tartiflette has also made its way into every home that loves cheese and Savoyard dishes.

It warms up because it is hearty, but also because the tartiflette is cooked with white wine, which adds a touch of warmth to the plate. To stay in the local products, the Savoyard tariflette is often cooked with dry white wines... of Savoy!
