“Piper-Heidsieck Champagne reprised its vinous cohosting duties, popping more than 1,500 bottles of Cuvée Brut Limited Edition, Cuvée Rare 2002 and Cuvée Rare 1998.

But while Guillermo del Toro waited with a flute of bubbly for his Best Director statuette to be engraved, and actress Maya Rudolph clinked glasses with costume designer Mark Bridges, something dastardly was afoot. Amid the revelry, Frances McDormand realized her briefly unattended statuette for Best Actress had been stolen. What ensued was a drama fit for the big screen.”

“We all love the Oscar ceremony to discover the best movies, to pick the best outfits but what about the wines?! Which ones have been served to the stars of Hollywood?

First of all Champagne and specifically the one of the notorious maison Piper-Heidsieck (PH), the only bubbles available at the Oscar ceremony as well as at Governors Ball (the Academy’s official Oscars after-party) since 3 years ago. For the occasion they have mainly poured the Cuvée Brut from a limited edition magnum.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate featured Piper-Heidsieck in the March 6, 2018 article “What Hollywood Listers Ate at the 2018 Academy Awards” about Chef Wolfgang Puck’s menu for Hollywood’s biggest night. 

“For dessert, celebrities had a second shot of snagging the golden statuette in the form of 7,000 of Puck’s signature chocolate Oscars coated in edible 24-carat gold dust.

Other sweet treats to end the night included cocktail-inspired macaróns fashioned after cocktails like the Negroni, Mojito and piña colada, marjolaine cake pops and lychee/rose/raspberry cakes.

Everything was washed down with the limited edition Piper-Heidsieck Champagne that was specially created to commemorate the 90th Oscars.”

Oscar News: Decanter


Decanter featured Piper-Heidsieck in the March 5, 2018 article Oscars 2018 Menu: Piper-Heidsieck, Coppola Wines and 15kg of Caviar” by Chris Mercer.

“Around 1,500 bottles of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne were served during the Oscars 2018 awards ceremony and Governors Ball, including one cuvée described by critics as a legend-in-the-making.

Nominees who didn’t win an Oscar at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night (4 March) might at least have been lucky enough to console themselves with a glass of one of the best Piper-Heidsieck Champagnes produced this century so far.

A wine list for the evening showed that organisers planned to serve 1,500 bottles of Piper-Heidsieck, including the ‘Rare’ 2002 vintage cuvée.

Champagne expert Richard Juhlin has tasted the Piper-Heidsieck Rare 2002 for Decanter in 2014 and reported that it ‘looks like becoming another legendary Piper in the same style and league as 1988, ’76 and ’55’.

Most of the Piper-Heidsieck Champagne served at the Oscars ceremony and Governors Ball was Cuvée Brut, poured from limited edition magnums.”
