2006 White Maximus
May 28, 2007
Touted by the producer as "a perfect picnic wine," I confess that with cucumber sandwiches and watercress sandwiches (crusts cut off, please), with cold roasted chicken and caper sauce, with chilled pea soup, Bennett Lane's Maximus 2006 would be a brilliant match. We had it one night recently with shrimp tacos while watching Pan's Labyrinth. The wine is a model...of chalky elegance; its aromas of roasted lemon and lemon curd, orange zest and honeysuckle and almond blossom segue into a wine loaded with crisp citrus flavors etched with lime and grapefruit and hints of peach.
