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?
