We were thinking a white Bordeaux or Burgundy, or even a California Chardonnay, would go great with this grilled cheese sandwich. It's made with gentle, buttery Cantal, a mild semi-firm cheese with a fantastic creamy consistency when melted. Caramelized shallots punctuated with a little fresh thyme add another dimension. Put all that between two crisp slices of country-style bread and raise a glass. Click here for the recipe.
