Sans Egal 2016 Platinum Collection

Sans Egal 2016 Platinum Collection
To create each Platinum Collection wine we start in our vineyard by selecting individual rows of vines which consistently produce the finest grapes. These vines receive meticulous care at every stage from pruning to harvest. The same precise care is given to each wine during fermentation, aging and blending to provide the absolute best expression of our estate. Opulent, with wonderful depth and balance, this wine seamlessly integrates the incredibly rich palette of the Michel-Schlumberger Estate.
