“Six-time official Oscars bubbly Piper created limited-edition Cuvée Brut magnums for the occasion, with labels that pay homage to the old bootlegging days of the Roaring Twenties (realistic enough throwback replicas that they’d do the wine-prop designers for The Irishman proud). More than 8,500 glasses of the brut, along with the prestige cuvée Rare 1998 and 2006, were served throughout the night, with winners Laura Dern and Taika Waititi spotted partaking during their award engravings.”

“Drink like the stars at your Oscar party. The official Champagne is Piper-Heidsieck and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Prohibition they made a limited-edition magnum with a replica of the Prohibition era label. In the 1920s, bootleggers would smuggle Piper-Heidsieck into the United States where it would be secretly served in speakeasys throughout New York City. Now, it’s served in my apartment in New York City. The house’s signature Cuvée Brut has 50-55% Pinot Noir, 30-35% Pinot Meunier, and 15-20% Chardonnay. I love bubbly that’s heavy on the red grapes, which gives it a little more depth and fruit.”

PIPER-HEIDSIECK RETURNS FOR THE 92nd OSCARS®

The French Champagne House Celebrates 100 Years Since Prohibition with Special Limited-Edition Bottle

Hollywood, CA (January 14, 2020) – Piper-Heidsieck, the revered French Champagne house known worldwide for its red label, is thrilled to announce its return as the sole Champagne to be served during the 92nd Oscars® awards season. This marks the sixth year of a long-term partnership between Piper-Heidsieck and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

One hundred years since the Eighteenth Amendment banned the sale of alcohol in the United States, Piper-Heidsieck is paying tribute to cinema in the Roaring Twenties with a limited-edition magnum to be served at this year’s Oscars. Featuring the House’s signature Cuvée Brut, the label will be a replica of the one used during the Prohibition era.

“In the 1920s, bootleggers would smuggle Piper-Heidsieck into the United States where it would be secretly served in speakeasys throughout New York City. Now, Hollywood’s biggest stars will get to enjoy the same Piper-Heidsieck Brut during the biggest awards show of the year,” declared Benoit Collard, General Manager for Piper-Heidsieck.

Piper-Heidsieck will be poured exclusively at the awards ceremony and Governors Ball, the Academy’s official Oscars after- party.

Jeb Dunnuck: 97 Points for Piper-Heidsieck Millésime Rare 2002

Piper-Heidsieck Millésime Rare 2002 received an excellent rating of 97 points from Jeb Dunnuck.

Piper-Heidsieck Millésime Rare Brut 2002
97 Points
“A gorgeous wine that’s a legend in the making, the 2002 Rare Brut is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, with just under 10 grams of dosage. Offering incredible notes of stone fruits, brioche, white flowers, and hints of toasted nuts, this flat out awesome wine is concentrated and opulent, yet still dances on the palate with vibrant acidity and great, great finish. It’s going to drink beautifully for another two to three decades. Bravo! This cuvee has only been made in 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, and in 2007.”

Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Millésime Rare 2007 received an excellent rating of 96+ points from Jeb Dunnuck.

Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Millésime Rare Brut 2007
96+ Points
“Another sensational Champagne, as well as the first vintage for the cuvee, the 2007 Rare Rosé (56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir) offers that beautiful nuance and complexity you only get from top rosé Champagnes. Orange blossom, strawberries, spice, dried flowers, toasted bread, and orange peel notes all emerge from this richly concentrated, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured 2007. With a fine, yet layered mousse, incredible complexity, and a great finish, this blockbuster effort will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and shine for 10-15 years or more.”

“The NV Cuvée Brut is a bright, fresh effort from this estate. Offering up plenty of yeasty notes, stone fruits, a kiss of brioche, and subtle minerality, it’s clean and lively on the palate, with bright acidity, and a classic dry finish. If you’re looking for a high-quality sparkler that will deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years, you can’t go wrong here.”

Capital Gazette included Piper-Heidsieck in the February 6, 2018 article Wine, etc.: Wine is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.  

“Most men will default to the usual gift: an effortless but very expensive, cringe-worthy dinner out. Your restaurant thanks you. But the adventurous will create something more original. Maybe a handmade greeting card, a walk in the park or — egad — an engagement ring.

Don’t do anything rash. Take it from us, keeping Valentine’s Day simple has been just as satisfying to our spouses once you get past the courtship. Some flowers, a card or a home-cooked dinner at home works fine. But no matter how simple the celebration, we’ve always have celebrated Valentine’s Day with wine — Champagne to start and a nice red over a hearty meal.

96 Points
“The salmon colored 2007 Rosé Millésime Rare has a clear, fresh slightly oaky-nougat and pretty vinous bouquet. It is a rich and slightly sweetish yet pure, refined, elegant and well-structured Rosé Champagne with a good grip and tension as well as a long,  intensely aromatic and powerful finish. This is a great and enormously complex Champagne with an extraordinary complex finish.”

Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage Brut NV
90 Points
“The NV Rosé Sauvage Brut has a dark salmon color (thanks to the 25% of red wine) and offers an intense, aromatic, almost meaty bouquet of red fruits (red currant, cherries) along with earthy, chalky, and yeasty brioche flavors. Vinous indeed on the nose! On the palate, this is a very fresh, clear and aromatic Rosé that comes a long as a sparkling red wine like Trollinger. It’s so charming, round and fresh but also dry and well-structured. The finish is clear, dry and cleansing, just gorgeous. This is a perfect Champagne to be served with fish, white meat, and even barbeque.”

90 Points
“Piper-Heidsieck’s white-golden colored, NV Cuvée Brut has a clear, fresh, fine, and aromatic bouquet with sweet cherry but also brioche and chalky aromas. The attack on the palate is fresh and delicate, and the charming finish reveals brioche and whole grain as well as aromatic fruit flavors. This is a medium-bodied, stimulatingly fresh and well-structured blend with gorgeous fruit and a clean, persistent finish. I’d like to brunch with it every Sunday morning until the night comes.”

Oscar News: Just Luxe

just-luxeFrom the “The 2017 Governors Ball after The Oscars”:

To toast the evening, the revered French Champagne house Piper-Heidsieck served their Limited Edition 89th Oscars Champagne. Magnum bottles are enrobed in red and have a design of gold encircling the bottle. It’s a beautiful blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay offering sparkling light gold and fine bubbles. The aroma of pear and apple dominate the flavor profile. 

They also  offered a rare 1998 Magnum made from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. This black and gold bottle has an elegant essence of sandalwood, gingerbread and orange blossom.

forbesForbes reports on “The Hollywood Roosevelt: The Original Oscars Hotel.” Lots of Piper there:

Forget the Dolby Theatre; back in Hollywood’s Golden Age, the Academy Awards were held half a block away at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. Today, this city landmark, crowned with its gigantic neon red sign and framed by towering palm trees, still attracts legions of celebrities, many of whom checked in for this year’s awards, accounting for the extra 600 bottles of Piper Champagne ordered by the hotel in advance of the ceremony. While this year’s event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will see up to 100 million people tuning in worldwide, the first edition in 1929 wasn’t even broadcast and the ceremony itself lasted just 15 minutes.

Oscar News: Today

todayToday looks at “the 20 greatest Oscar dresses from the last 20 years,” and Piper-Heidsieck is a part of the story:

Almost exactly 20 years ago, Nicole Kidman delivered a knockout punch at the Academy Awards by wearing a heart-stopping chartreuse Dior; on Sunday, she will step onto that same red carpet as one of the consistently biggest and boldest dressers in a styling game her gown helped change forever. Will Kidman come fashion full-circle with a nod to the dress that put her on the map? That question is just one of a zillion reasons we’re spending Sunday’s Oscars glued to the fashion parade, awash in snacks and bubbly (as brand ambassadors, Piper-Heidsieck gets our nod!).
