Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2013 Comte de M is mostly a 55/21 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, with Syrah and Mourvèdre filling out the blend, aged for 23 months in new French oak. It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. A bit more dense and powerful than the Estate red reviewed this issue, this, more importantly, has a very different flavor profile. The Cab Franc (hopefully, the green hints are only from the Franc) results in nuances from herbs and a trace of green around the edges. It is mild, but it gives the wine admirable complexity. It took an hour for this to open up--longer than the Estate red--but when it did, it drank beautifully. This is another well done Comte de M, but it doesn't blow away its less expensive sibling--at least today. As time goes on, they may separate. This seems likely to hold better. Let's start here and let it prove its case in the cellar. Sourced from 24-year-old vines between 960 and 1,050 meters high, this is the winery's high-end red.
