Piper-Heidsieck Debuts Limited-Edition Magnum for Oscar Night
Piper-Heidsieck has found a way to celebrate its Oscars partnership. The French champagne house, which will be the sole champagne to be served during the 2017 Academy Awards season, has created a limited-edition magnum bottle to be poured exclusively at the ceremony and the official afterparty, the Governors Ball.
The Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut magnum is enrobed in red and features a design of gold film that encircles the bottle. "On behalf of Piper-Heidsieck, I want to congratulate all the nominees for this great recognition by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences," said Benoit Collard, global executive director of Piper-Heidsieck. “Piper-Heidsieck has a long and rich association with cinema and is proud to return to the Oscars, the ultimate arbiter of cinematic achievement in film.”
The 2017 Academy Awards season marks the third year of the partnership between Piper-Heidsieck and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In addition to its presence at the awards show on Feb. 26, Piper-Heidsieck will be poured at Academy events in Los Angeles, New York and London, including the Oscar Nominees Luncheon on Feb. 6.
