TERROIR Clay and gravel without excess water thanks to the natural slopes of the plots and the century-old drainage network.

The 1986 L'Eglise-Clinet remains a young, densely-colored wine with gobs of fruit and intensity. I have always preferred it to such other vintages as 1982, 1983, and 1989. The full-bodied 1986 exhibits excellent concentration and an over-ripe component. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-30 years. Last tasted 12/95
