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.

Oscar News: Forbes

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!).
