The lands that comprise Château Kefraya — located in the West Bekaa Valley of Lebanon — have been owned and farmed by the Bustros’ family for generations, though the château itself was built in 1946. Michel de Bustros, founder of the estate, made the decision to plant vines in 1951, and in 1979, Château Kefraya began producing wine from their own grapes. The organically-farmed, clay-limestone vineyards spread over 300 hectares at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level. The estate uses a wide variety of both indigenous and international varietals to craft delicious and exciting blends. Château Kefraya expertly balances winemaking tradition with state-of-the-art equipment.

Château Kefraya’s Comte de M is a tribute to the Phoenicians who grew their vineyards on the same lands over 4000 years ago. The Comte de M gained international recognition when Robert Parker gave the 1996 vintage a score of 91, and more recently the 2012 vintage, a score of 93. The 2015 vintage — a beautiful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah — pours a deep, inky purple, offering a dazzling bouquet of black stone and berry fruit marked with notes of sandalwood and clove. The silky-smooth palate is medium- to full-bodied displaying a wonderful combination of blackberry, cassis and plum flavors mixed with hints of dark chocolate and baking spice. Finely integrated tannins help guide the wine to a long, powerful and complex finish. A great counterpart to strong cheeses, though this wine will pair delightfully with grilled lamb or beef.
