It's a Bulk Buy rated French red blend priced low enough (just $10.83 a bottle) to be a daily drinker! The Sanssouci Le Rouge Red Blend.
This one gets a huge overall rating thanks to its great taste (91-93 points) and extremely low cost through our 1 day deal.
We love Syrah and France is home to some of the best. Today we go to the Languedoc for an excellent example, blended with a little Grenache for good measure.
The Sanssouci Le Rouge Red Blend is 85% Syrah from three sites within the Languedoc - the alluvial soils of the Nimes region near the Rhone Valley plus the varying limestone soils of the Beziers plain and the Aude Valley.
The remainder, 15% Grenache, comes from the hillsides of the Pezenas area as well as a calcareous site in Minervois. The wine is fermented (30% whole cluster) in concrete tanks and then aged 6 months with 10% in oak barrels.
The result is a delicious and complex, yet easy drinking wine that punches well above its price point. In fact, the first thing we wrote in our notes upon tasting this one was simply…
This bottle will disappear quickly.

From the winery:
The French expression sans-souci means “without a care.” It is also the name of Frederick the Great’s famous royal palace in Potsdam, Germany, where Ernst Loosen’s forebear, Peter Joseph Lenné, had his greatest triumph as a landscape architect. It was great-great-uncle Peter’s sense of beauty, elegance and grace that inspired Ernst to cultivate Sanssouci — a selection of deliciously carefree wines from the south of France.
Sanssouci wines are produced by Laurent Delaunay at his Abbotts & Delaunay winery in the Languedoc region, near Carcassone. Ernst Loosen started working with Laurent over a decade ago to produce affordable, high-quality red wines that he could import to the German market. Centrally located in the Aude valley, between the appellations of Corbières, Minervois, Faugères and Limoux, Laurent has extensive fruit sources throughout the region.
Le Rouge is a classic blend of Syrah and Grenache. It shows the lush red fruits and floral character that are typical of Grenache, together with the brambly blackberry and dark fruits of Syrah. The wine is concentrated and plush on the palate, with juicy persistence.
The 2017 Sanssouci Le Rouge Red Blend begins with lots of meaty dark fruit upfront just like you would expect with Syrah. There's also some underlying brighter fruit and floral notes from the Grenache. Together it's highly engaging.
Taking a sip reveals similar flavors to the nose with the two varieties playing off of each other wonderfully. Tasty and easy drinking but also featuring a good bit of complexity, it's hard not to like this one. It's quite good right out of the bottle but it also gains some additional depth after a few hours of air.
It ends dry, quite long, a bit grippy and even a bit juicy with lots of light, lingering spicy touches. This is really quite delicious and satisfying. Like we said above, this bottle will disappear quickly, as will this deal!
