      Winemaker Notes

      Produced from Muscat a Petit Grains, or Brown Muscat as it is more commonly known, theGrand Muscat is a deep amber color with a tawny rim. It displays a complex nose of spicedfruitcake, coffee and subtle rancio characters derived from time in oak. The complex palateshows luscious prunes, dried raisins and mature peaty spirits finishing with impressive persistence.

      The olive rim to a walnut-brown heart of the colour sets the scene; the heady essence of raisin bouquet pushes any discussions of the fortifying spirit to the back row; in its place there is an Arabian bazaar of spices, with a nod to Turkish baklava, then a rolling wave of Christmas pudding with a garnish of dark chocolate and caramelised roast nuts. The ultimate magic of the Chambers wines lies in the freshness of the finish.

      The Grand level of Chambers' offerings may be the best compromise between expense, rarity and quality. This Grand Muscat boasts knockout scents of dried flowers, tea leaves and rancio, while the flavors are date-like in sweet intensity but accompanied by floral qualities and impeccable freshness. #57 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2016

      There’s no getting around the fact that this wine is sweet, a huge wave of sugar that might knock you over, even as the texture provides a down pillow of softness to cradle your fall. It would be hard not to fall for this wine, scented in a complex array of gingerbread, graham cracker, orange pekoe tea and jasmine. It’s plump in the middle, lasting on grape-scented sweetness, with a fascinating crushed mineral structure holding that sweetness and making it profound. The Chambers family blends this from stocks they have maintained since the early 20th century.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      With a medium brown color going slightly green at the edge, NV Rosewood Vineyards Grand Muscat has aromas of macerated sultanas, fig paste, baklava, toasted hazelnuts and coffee grounds plus a little mace. The palate is very sweet and very crisp with an unctuous silkiness that blankets the mouth and lingers a very long time.
      WS 93
      Wine Spectator
      Toasted hazelnut, salted caramel and dark chocolate–covered coffee bean flavors are bold and intense, set on a smooth and silky frame, but with plenty of freshness to stand up to the sweetness. Spice and tobacco notes linger. Drink now through 2028.

      The Chambers winery has been family owned since its establishment in 1858. The winemaking duties and care of the "old material" have been handed down from father to son through five generations and for the last 40 years has rested with Bill Chambers.

      Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines from Margaux, the most inland appellation of the Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

      Margaux’s gravel soils are the thinnest of the Médoc, making them most penetrable by vine roots—some reaching down over 23 feet for water. The best sites are said to be on gentle outcrops, or croupes, where more gravel facilitates good drainage.

      The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification but it is nonetheless important in regards to history of the area. In 1855 the finest chateaux were deemed on the basis of reputation and trading price—at that time. In 1855 Chateau Margaux achieved first growth status, yet it has been Chateau Palmer (officially third growth from the 1855 classification) that has consistently outperformed others throughout the 20th century.

      Chateau Margaux in top vintages is capable of producing wines described as pure, intense, spell-binding, refined and profound with flavors and aromas of black currant, violets, roses, orange peel, black tea and incense.

      Other top producers worthy of noting include Chateau Rauzan-Ségla, Lascombes, Brane-Cantenac, and d’Issan, among others.

      The best wines of Margaux combine a deep ruby color with a polished structure, concentration and an unrivaled elegance.

      Bordeaux Blends

      View all wine

      One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

      In the Glass

      Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

      Perfect Pairings

      Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

      Sommelier Secret

      While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
