Sunday Wine Facts: James Bond’s Wines

Iconic super-spy James Bond loved many women, but he was loyal to only one Champagne.

From the very first Bond novel, Casino Royale, 007’s fizz of choice was vintage Taittinger.

He drank the Blanc de Blanc, made from 100% Chardonnay. In the original James Bond novels, author Ian Fleming misspelled Bond’s signature Champagne as Tattinger. James Bond also enjoyed a Château Mouton Rothschild 1947 vintage with Goldfinger. In Diamonds are Forever, 007 catches out the assassin Wint posing as a waiter because the killer didn’t know that Mouton-Rothschild is a claret. In From Russia With Love, he ordered a Brolio Chianti Classico, made from Tuscan Sangiovese. When dining with the titular bad guy in Goldfinger, Bond indulges in a bottle of Piesporter Goldtröpfchen – chosen by Goldfinger for its golden hue, but described by Bond as “Nectar.” Good old Bond!
