Double Take of Mommessin and Follin Arbelet

Mommesin Bourgogne 2003: Bought this Pinot Noir from the local supermarket at a crazy price of sub RM60 * which translate to less than SGD25. It opened up with some typical cherry, without any complexity in the palate. The palate was rather diluted but was forgiven at this price point. It wasnt delicious on the first nite however, the palate dramatically improved on the second nite as more woody tannins and earth/stem note appearred, which covered up the hollowness of the palate.

Domain Follin Arbelet, Pernand Vergelesses Les Fichots, Premier Cru, 2004: I am a fan of Follin Arbelet entry level wines, which screams value for money compared to many Burgundy Producer. This Pernand Vergelesses was not an exception either, with a good damp earth tone, and some stemminess on the nose. the palate carries good weight, with cherry and later dark tea dominating the end palate. Good buy at around SGD65.
