It’s award season and the OFFICIAL champagne of the Academy Awards is here! Piper-Heidsieck launched in South Africa in 2017, arriving just in time for summer. With the 90th Academy Awards airing this Sunday night, Piper-Heidsieck is here to add a touch of glam for Cape Town’s biggest film fans…
The Oscars Love Piper-Heidsieck
A bottle of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne appeared on the silver screen just four years after the advent of talking films. The year was 1933 and Piper-Heidsieck soon became the Champagne of choice for stars such as Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart and Fred Astaire. In 1953, following her resounding success in “Gentlemen Prefer Blonds,” Marilyn Monroe confided that she wore five drops of Chanel N°5 to bed and started each day with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck.
What Does Piper-Heisieck Taste Like?
SEDUCTIVE: Just like a self-assured romantic character with a strong and chatty personality. This champagne teases and allures us with its festive, light-drenched, pale gold shimmer and joyful display of neat, lively bubbles.
STRAIGHT: Notes of almond and fresh hazelnut accompany the precise ascent of its bubbles. It is lively, subtle and light, leaving a deliciously incisive sensation of smoothness, marked by the pureness of fresh pear and apple and a delicate hint of citrus fruits.
BRIGHT: A harmonious mixture of bright, crunchy pomelo, blonde grapes and juicy white fruits creates the delightfully surprising sensation of lightness embraced by the structure and depth from the Pinot Noir; all beautifully balanced.
