Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 89 (Jul. 2019)

The 1986 l’Eglise-Clinet has a lovely bouquet that is very well defined with blackberry, camphor, cassis and violet. This is far more seductive and sensual than I anticipated. The palate is medium-bodied with stern tannins, very well balanced with savory-tinged dark berry fruits. It feels cohesive and fresh towards the dry finish that abruptly scarpers out of the door. Not bad, though it seems to be in decline and I have always preferred the previous vintage. Tasting note taken from the Pomerol book by Neal Martin.
