 Parmentier d’Agneau (Shepherd’s Pie) à la Thierry Germain

A shining star of the biodynamic wine scene in the Loire, Thierry Germain proposes a spring lamb shepherd’s pie to accompany the peppery, cinnamon spice elements of his Terres Chaudes cuvée. Chop the roasted shoulder meat finely and sauté with carrots, onions, and celery, plus some lamb fat and herbs to create a confit. Mash several potatoes, season them to perfection, and don’t go light on the butter and good-quality Comté cheese. Distribute the lamb confit in cocottes, top with potatoes, and pop them in the oven at 325°F for 20 minutes. At table, the deep ruby Cabernet Franc reveals a discreetly floral nose followed by a pleasant ripe fruit palate and a hint of eucalyptus. –Emily Spillmann
