Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin Singapore, Potel Tasting. (Harbour Grill, Hilton Hotel, Singapore): Obviously a good wine, but very tight at the moment, and completely overshadowed by the stupendous Criots Batard Montrachet. Yellow gold, slightly paler in colour than the Criots. Nose was dominated by chalk, mineral and earth, Not as forward as its stablemate, but still attractive, with a sense of lurking opulence waiting to emerge. There was a slight vulgar, savoury fungus, sulphuric whiff at the end of the nose. Interesting minerality on the palate again, very stony, with the fruit rather buried. Great structure, really long, powdery finish, with a slight hint of bitter at the tail. Very austere at the moement, tight and steely. This needs plenty of time.

(Potel Nicolas Corton-Charlemagne) deep and savoury nose with just a little background sulfur. Very mineral, soft in texture and widening into the mid-palate and long, long in the finish. This has some understatement for a Charlemagne but the depth and concentration are obvious.
