One of the three crus bourgeois Medoc properties under the control of Marie-Laure Lurton, Duplessis has produced an attractive, fruity wine in 2003, which shows good tannic structure under its black currant and herb flavors. It is fine and elegant, with a deliciously lively aftertaste, and should develop well. Imported by Hartley and Parker.
