Reply to "It’s October folks - what wines are you guzzling?"

Last night at my place with a group of the Toronto crew. WOTN for me was the 1990 Bollinger. But everything showed exceptionally well. All the reds were fantastic. 

FYI we opened the 2016 Piantonaia - the wine that Galloni gave 50 points, calling it abysmal and horrendous. We drank it alongside the 2009. The 09 was superb. The 16 lacked the structure and depth of the 09, but it was a perfectly enjoyable, fruit forward, early drinking vintage of Piantonaia. The general consensus was that it’s a 88-90 point wine.
