Terret is used to denote both a red grape – terret noir, one of the thirteen permitted varietals in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and white wine. There are references to both terret gris and terret.
Marc Roman’s clean, modern label simply declares the brand name and “terret.” for the varietal. The appellation, Vin de Pays d’Oc, and bottler information are in small print on the back label.
The floral, citrusy bouquet is smallish but nice. The fresh, lemony palate has lots of fruit and zesty acidity. Focused, with a nice finish.
This wine is better than 95% percent of the California chardonnays at this price; it’s definitely worth buying.
$6.99 retail; imported by Frederick Wildman.
