Then Colin Firth, who won best actor for The King’s Speech, would be Le Reve, a blanc de blanc, that’s austere and elegant.
And Natalie Portman, who won best actress for “Black Swan,” would be J Schram, a rich, complex brut with a big personality.
Karen MacNeil, author of the Wine Bible, who also teaches wine classes, has long taught her students about varietals by pairing them with movie stars. As I recall she once likened a lush chardonnay to Marilyn Monroe.
With the Oscar winners still reveling in their win, no doubt the bubbly is still flowing today so the timing is good for a twist on MacNeil’s play on varietals.
As for co-host Anne Hathaway … I think she’d be the Roederer Estate Brut Rose, a bright, round bubbly with an inviting rose-colored hue. With seven gowns, she wins hands down as the most colorful at the Oscars.
