Is Gout All About the Purines?

With gout you're supposed to avoid red meat, cheese, and alcohol, because purines. However, looking at this chart, red meat has no more purines than chicken, and half as much as salmon, which is supposed to be okay; and Edam cheese is super low on purines. Is the red meat/cheese/alcohol advice just wrong? Is there some other factor? In 2012 folks were talking about fructose. Is there any more recent and more solid advice?
