Château Colombier-Monpelou 2008

Back in July, my buddy Ron's son G came to visit with us for a week in California from the UK.  While G was here we enjoyed some hearty grass fed, hormone free rare grilled steaks and other delicious dishes.  The first nice "dinner" we had at home, DDF insisted we open up a good solid Bordeaux for G to taste.  I selected this Château Colombier-Monpelou 2008 which I believe we purchased at Total Wine for around $20.  It did not disappoint.

Sure, it was G's first taste (by his own admission) of a quality Bordeaux wine, but like my own introduction back in 2002 in Jonzac France by Pierre Gourdon (R.I.P.) who served us an amazing Margaux which he'd cellared for 10 years, I wanted the first taste to be better than "OK".  DDF and I tremendously enjoyed it, and G liked it.
