French white wine values tasted in 2011

The selected vibrant bottlings have given me much pleasure for the price. I have purchased them again for personal consumption. This page skips the tasting notes of the wines that are not imported into the USA. The complete page of French wine values can be found here.

The below wines were tasted in France, in 2011 (between April and December). The tasting notes are listed by increasing prices, with the following format:
