Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, a touch of Mourvèdre and Carignan, a selection of the best vineyards at 1,100 metres. Aged in all new French oak. Lots of spicy oak here, lots of toast and a touch of marzipan, quite buttery. The fruit has a lovely dry extract richness and smoothness, with plum and cherry melding with tobacco notes and some chocolaty density to the tannins. Smooth and rich and very young. 90/100.

The Domaine
Situated in the heart of Lebanon, in the Bekaa valley, Château Kefraya's 300 hectare domain extends to the foothills of Mount Lebanon, 20 km to the south of the city of Chtaura. The vineyards are planted in a succession of terraces and hills which are often on quite abrupt slopes, at an altitude of 950 to 1100 meters on clayey, limy and stony soils and with six to seven months a year without any precipitation. The winery is located at the centre of the domain and is fitted with highly sophisticated equipment allowing the manually gathered grapes to be conveyed, picked off from the bunch, vinified and pressed in small quantities and with maximum care and attention to each individual parcel.

Food Pairing
Beef, duck, lamb and roast chicken.
