The Oscars return on March 4th and Champagne Piper-Heidsieck will be served during the event! This is an exciting year again for both the Oscars nominees as well as Piper-Heidsieck because of what a star-studded event it is. The bottle this year is an Art-Deco Inspired Limited Edition Magnum that commemorates the “Golden Age of Hollywood”.
“We are particularly proud to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Oscars,” declared Benoit Collard, Executive Director for Piper-Heidsieck. “This anniversary bottle represents the history of excellence that unites the Academy and Piper-Heidsieck. These magnums, bottled in Reims and enjoyed in Los Angeles, are the very expression of the universal magic of cinema, to which we are paying tribute.” -Piper-Heidsieck
Piper-Heidsieck, which is one of the most awarded Champagne’s is always a favorite of the Oscars. This beautiful bottle, which is made solely for this star-studded event, is engraved with an Oscars style, golden appliqué that wraps around the bottle. It looks very “old Hollywood”, draped with class and elegance; just like the Champagne.
I had the pleasure of sipping this lovely wine at an Oscars Nominee party at The Tuck Room inside the IPic Theater. It’s a beautiful wine, full of citrus, floral, and bread aromas. Easily you can pair this champagne with a juicy medium rare burger, which is what I would do while watching the Oscars since it’s at night.
Be sure to watch the 90th Oscars®, Sunday, March 4th. If you want to sip like a celebrity, you can enjoy Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Brut, which is the same wine/juice as they’re drinking, just in a different labeled bottle! Please pair responsibly.
