Me neither. But at least the price range of the beverage will be even with that of the dish. Anyhow, some kind of light red wine, I'd even go as far as suggesting a rose.
Don't let jerrysfriend hear that suggestion. I'd pair it with some Petrus

Do you know how funny it is for a French person to be talking about which wine to drink with a hachis parmentier? I mean, originally, this is a peasant dish made out of leftovers. But I bet some restaurant somewhere in America is selling a plate for $34 .

I think I would prefer a red zin, maybe with a slight chill on it to take the bite off....I love a true zin, not that blush crap, but a real deep red zin is great

You haven't eaten at my house. (And I am, for the record, very slender). When we have friends over, a meal lasts at least 4 hours. None of that "15 minutes up, now let's do the dishes" kind of scenario. All our American friends have gotten used to it. Such torture...

One great zin (if you can get it) is the 2002 Neal Family Rutheford Zinfandel. Quite tasty, and smoother and less peppery than most zins around. I still stand by the Petrus (or other really good merlot) recommendation, as I think it's too light for cab-based bdx or a full cab.
