What *Else* Are We Drinking Now? Sébastien Besson Juliénas

Seth has a Beaujolais for your Easter table. Sébastien Besson Juliénas This Beaujolais is super-elegant and classy while remaining approachable for everyone (even those who aren't familiar with the Gamay varietal). The grapes are hand-harvested at the perfect ripeness and fermented in both concrete and stainless steel.
