Robert Parker hailed the 2009 vintage as "The finest vintage of Bordeaux that I have tasted in 37 years".
"What's so striking about 2009 - and I haven't seen this sort of excitement since 1982 - is the quality of the Cru bourgeois and the petits vins and the generic Bordeaux that are available.In short,2009 is the greatest vintage I have tasted in Bordeaux since 1982,of which it is a modern-day version,but greatly improved".

Robert Parker. (The Wine Advocate. #188. April 2010).

Chateau Duplessis is named after Armand du Plessis,nephew of Cardinal Richelieu,whose hunting lodge it once was.The chateau is now owned by Marie-Laure Lurton,of the hugely influentially Lurton family,who have a deep understanding of what gives Bordeaux wines their character.
The 2009 Chateau Duplessis is a blend of 79% Merlot,12% Cabernet Sauvignon,7.6% Cabernet Franc and 1.4% Petit Verdot.Manual harvest,it is matured for 12 months in French oak (25% of which is new).Deep red,with tinges of purple,this wine shows an expressive nose,with aromas of vanilla,cinnamon,blackcurrant and liquorice.On the palate,it is lively and fruity with good tannins to the fore,with a fresh,minty finish.

The 2009 Chateau Duplessis won a Gold Medal at the Concours General Agricole,Paris in 2011.

"Fresh,with a lovely acidity from start to finish,with cherry,fig and notes of brambles.There is a subtly firm definition of grilled spices that frame the finish".
(89 Points).

James Suckling. (The Wine Spectator. March 2010).

"Dark hue.Profound nose,gradually opening up to black and forest fruit tones.On the palate,a powerful and traditional,yet harmonious style.Ripe tannins and freshness highlighting the fruit aromas structure the whole".
(89 Points).

Gilbert & Gaillard (27/6/2013).
