Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin Singapore, Potel Tasting. (Harbour Grill, Hilton Hotel, Singapore): Very young, but good potential on this one. Cool, clean cherry drop nose at first, with some dry earth. Took on a bit more complexity and weight with time in the glass. Clear, clean fruit again on the palate, with a sense of power and persistence. Bits of spice started appearing with time, and slowly became more and more pronounced. Firm tannins, more velvet than silk, stood out quite a bit, especially at the start of the palate. It was certainly tighter and a lot firmer that the Charmes Chambertin tasted together. High alcohol, and rather lower acid than its stablemate. I would have liked a bit more freshness on a wine of this intensity. Still, I liked the really focused fruit and long, lingering finish.
