Wine Served a Chambre

Chambre Billy of the Wine Cask Blog asked me about the term, Chambré.  I had heard it before - yet like many semi-familiar wine terms, I assumed I knew what it meant.  Chambré is used, in both French and English, to describe a wine warmed to ambient (room - chamber) temperature.

Obnoxious usage example:  Excuse me, dear chap.  Might I have a goblet of that claret a Chambré?

Less obnoxious usage example:  Hey, Jim.  Some assclown at the bar asked for a glass of the Meritage a Chambré!?  What does that mean?
