I'm not trying to over hype a $10 wine, but dang...this is probably the best sub $10 full bodied red wine I have tasted since we brought in Carmita a few years ago. Just sayin'...
I tasted the Momentum, along with the Clerus, against a very well regarded $80 Rhone wine the other night and I think I preferred Momentum and Clerus... 👀 Maybe the other wine was just trying too hard.
If you try just one new sub $10 wine this year (and honestly, who does that, am I right?), please make it this one. I think it's that good.
What's the deal here?
The GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) category has certainly reached the ears of most wine consumers, though it started as little more than an interesting Australian blend in homage to southern Rhone Valley reds. Nowadays, everybody does it, and why not? Grenache is juicy and full, Syrah is mouth-filling and peppery and the two of them, more often than not, need the indescribable weirdness of Mourvedre to complete a picture with chiaroscuro depth.
The Cellier d’Eole is a cooperative based in Rieux Minervois (one of the best areas in the Languedoc-Roussillon) with 205 members that cultivate 3800 acres. Winemaker Marilyn Lasserre has an expansive view of wine styling, having trained in Bordeaux, South Africa, Australia and the US. For Momentum Solare think richness, intensity, and surprising depth for a wine of this price point.
TGIF everybody! I know what I'm drinking tonight!
