About the Producer

Since 1690, Chambert's Malbec wines have been enjoyed by kings, Russian tzars and French officers in Bordeaux

Château de Chambert lies 30 kilometres west of the town of Cahors, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

 

Owned and run by Philippe Lejeune since 2007, with the additional support of consultant winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt, the estate has already garnered considerable attention in France and is top critic Michel Bettane’s ‘One to Watch’.

 

The elegant, modern wines are made from the deep-coloured Malbec variety, which traditionally produced the ‘black wines’ of Cahors.

Cahors Malbec is different from Malbec from Argentina. It's darker, more savoury, and a little brooding compared to its more juicy, rich, and smooth South American cousin. It's a wonderful wine for the autumn months when the seasons change and it becomes chillier, and more cosy and warming food is required. I love the idea of teasing out some of the spice and fruity notes through a fruity and savoury tagine such as this one.
