Chateau Kefraya : Comte de M 2011

Bekaa Valley - Red Chateau Kefraya Chateau Kefraya 2011 J2006/11
  • Parker : 92
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2011 Comte de M has become quite a nice value, showing consistently fine quality at a reasonable price point. It is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with 17.8% Syrah added in; aged for 24 months in new French oak of various toasts. This is a much more elegant and refined vintage than some we have seen in the past, with fine acidity. Where some seemed like blockbusters (the 2009 was a Big Boy), this has more grace. It won't be as obvious, perhaps, but in many respects I liked it about as well. Tightly wound, it shows subtle concentration, never seeming either thin or jammy. It isn't shy on power, though. It finishes very tight, with fine fruit. That tightly wound mid-palate is attractive and the wine promises that there will be complexity to come. The main problem is that the oak is a bit intrusive just now, but that should change. Overall, it is beautiful, even if different. Sourced from Cabernet vines planted in 1995 and Syrah vines planted in 2002, there were 44,000 bottles produced.;2015 - 2025
