1994 Chateau Belle Brise Pomerol 75cl
Château Belle Brise Pomerol. Henri de Coincy produces a great wine in his 2 hectares vineyards.
Belle-Brise is situated in the south-western corner of Pomerol, just under one kilometer from Libourne centre and a few hundred meters from railway (train Bordeaux-Paris). The soil at Belle Brise is really exceptional - small pebbles and gravel on the surface, 1 m deep layer of clay mixed with "crasse de fer" at the top of chalk layer in the underground. These soil-conditions are very atypical and quite remarkable for this part of the district, section of Réne and Toulifaut on the western side of the N89 road dividing Pomerol in two, where you normally find much sand on the surface and very little of "crasse de fer" in the subsoil. There are 2 ha of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, and average age of vines is 35 years.
