    6 Classic Movies that Featured Champagne

    ChampagneMovie

    Known as “Wine of Victory”, Champagne is always the first choice for gatherings and celebrations. For example, The Academy Awards, popularly known as the Oscars, always partners with high-quality Champagne brands to celebrate with winners and the whole movie industry! Champagne always plays an important role in the movie, like Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie “The Great Gatsby” giving a toast  with Champagne! Let’s check out more famous Champagne scenes in movies!

    1.“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961) – Breakfast with Champagne

    The ever-glamourous actress Audrey Hepburn played a lot of classic roles in movies, especially the 1961 movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”! Dressed in a black sheath dress of utmost simplicity, accessorised with a shiny crown and a Tiffany necklace, and holding a long extendable cigarette holder, Audrey in this iconic look has become a legend ever since. There was a romantic scene in the movie that Audrey Hepburn discussed with George Peppard how to design a romantic day. Audrey Hepburn proposed to do things they have never done before such as drinking Champagne before breakfast. Therefore, their date started with a Champagne, which is so lovely!

    2.“Pretty Woman” (1990) – Moët & Chandon Champagne

    The all-time classic romantic comedy “Pretty Woman”, starring Oscar-winning American actress Julia Roberts and Hollywood’s most bankable leading actor Richard Gere, offers a perky modern Cinderella story for us. There was an unforgettable scene when Julia Roberts drank Moët & Chandon Champagne, and Richard Gere advised her to try with a strawberry with it since this could bring out the flavour of the Champagne. This would be a good idea for you to enjoy the film again with Champagne and strawberries!

    3.《The Great Gatsby》 (2013) - Moët & Chandon Champagne

    2013 movie “The Great Gatsby” was definitely a fabulous marketing coup for Moët & Chandon! “The Great Gatsby” is a romantic drama film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel of the same name, which described the extremes of the 1920s American wealth and decadence. The main character Gatsby earned his money by bootlegging alcohol, and that’s why a lot of extravagant, Champagne-fuelled party scenes could be seen in the movie. As the sponsor of the Great Gatsby, Moet & Chandon Champagne was everywhere in the movies. Just like the author of The Great Gatsby said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.” After all, who can resist Champagne?

    4. James Bond film series – Bollinger

    As one of the greatest style icons of all time, James Bond has his personal fine wine preferences including cocktail, spirits, red wine, and Champagne. Bollinger is James Bond’s favourite Champagne brand, which is also the official supplier of Champagne to the British court! Bollinger first appeared in the 1973 movie “Live and Let Die” and has become the key sponsor for the James Bond film since then.

    The Bollinger Champagne has been featured in 15 times out of 25 Bond films, and well-known scenes include James Bond enjoying a glass of Bollinger on his private plane in the movie “Moonraker” (1979). Bollinger uses a majority of Pinot Noir with aromas of oak and fruit that makes it to be one of the Bond favourites.

    5. “The Seven Year Itch” (1955) – Piper Heidsieck

    American romantic movie “The Seven Year Itch” is one of the most renowned movies of Hollywood’s eternal darling Marilyn Monroe. It featured her iconic subway grate pose! Champagne played an important role in the movie. Marilyn said in the movie, “I go to sleep with a few drops of Chanel No.5, and I wake up with a glass of Piper Heidsieck champagne every morning.” – the lines made Piper Heidsieck the hottest Champagne at that time. Today, Piper Heidsieck is the most awarded Champagne in the world and has been the official champagne of Oscars 7 times.

    6.“Casablanca” – G.H Mumm

    Starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, 1942 American romantic drama film “Casablanca” won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay Oscar Awards, and was even chosen by the American Film Institute (AFI) as the greatest romantic film in the past 100 years! Because of the war, the lover ended up with a poignant farewell at the airport which has been one of the most touching movie scenes.  G.H Mumm Champagne witnessed their love relationship from they first met in Paris to the war broke out!
