Being skeptical that a 93 rated wine can be purchased for less than $20, I couldn't resist trying this French chardonnay. I was also curious about the rating capabilities of the Wine News committee. Faiveley is a golden color with a pleasant floral scent. It is crisp, silky, and has a long finish. I didn't try it with food. It is a very good wine, and a bargain. I just don't think it was a great wine, and the rating is less than 93. The Wine News committee did better than most committees.
