One of the best white summer quaffers in the world of wine costs $10 and is probably sitting lonely on the bottom shelf in the French section of your local wine shop, tall, slender and green, filled with thirst-quenching awesomeness waiting to be snatched up and guzzled down.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Le Jade Picpoul de Pinet offers slightly more oomph, with exotic lemon, citrus, and melon notes. It's clean, vibrant, has racy acidity, and a clean, crisp finish. It's another terrific white that sells for a song. Drink it over the coming summer months."

wa"Made from 100% Picpoul, the 2012 Picpoul de Pinet comes across like a classic Muscadet from the northern Loire Valley. Lots of crushed rock, grapefruit and lemon zest characteristics, in addition to more texture and flesh than one expects from this varietal, are found in this lovely, medium-weight, dry white. It is best consumed over the next year."
