Review: Wine Tasting with Tim Triptree
On Friday 28th June, Tim Triptree (TU 1989-94), International Wine Director at Christie’s Auction House, hosted a wine tasting evening for OMs. The event was hugely popular and sold out very quickly.
Tim looked back on the event saying, “The Marlburian Club got in contact with me to see if I’d be willing to arrange a wine lunch and I said yes of course! It was fantastic to host the lunch and it proved to be a great success. The food at Bar Boulud was superb and paired perfectly with fine French wines. I also gave attendees a blind tasting test, and the guests were delighted when I revealed it was a Boal Madeira from the 1900 vintage. An extremely rare and stunning wine!”
Guest Nick Denny (SU 1965-69) emailed Tim to say, “I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the food was very good as were the wines..The Domaine la Course du Roy was new to me and most enjoyable. You saved the star of the show till last, namely the 1900 Bual which was sensational.”
