I don't even have to click on the link to recall that one. Val comes in looking like a slob orders the bottle all cool like, the waiter looks him up and down and says something like that bottle is 400 Euro and he says "Oh make it two bottles then" and pulls out a wad of cash from inside the crotch of his pants. Then of course gets the gal. Big timer!
Had to look all of these up to get the years and movies correct but here is James Bonds encounters with Dom Perignon:

1946 Dom in the movie Moonraker
1955 Dom in the movie Dr. No (but says he prefers the 1953)
1955 again in the movie Thunderball
States again that he prefers the 1953 Dom in Goldfinger
1957 Dom in the movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service
1959 Dom in the movie You Only Live Twice
1964 Dom in the movie The Man with the Golden Gun (but says he prefers the 1962)
In The Spy Who Loved Me he says “Any man who drinks Dom Perignon ’52 can’t be all bad”

He also drinks Taittinger in one movie and in later movies switches to Bollinger.

Don't forget the bottle of Angelus prominently displayed on the train ride with Vespa in the most recent Casino Royale.

The first time I ever heard of SQN was in a TV show. I can't recall the name of the show -- it was on FX or similar network and was about a special ops-type squad. It starred the black guy from the All-State commercials and also dealt with their home life. Anyway, in one of their missions they are trying to get close to a guy and bring him a bottle of SQN (don't know vintage) to which he responds that he's been trying to get hold of some of it. I don't remember the year, but it was very early in my exploration of wine, and I remember looking up the winery on the Internet and seeing that the price was well beyond my usual purchases.

And a bottle of Bollinger RD for the Soviet "defector", General Koskov, in The Living Daylights
I registered just so I could respond to this post.

There are, obviously, numerous wine references in the James Bond franchise. My favorite comes in the epilog of Diamonds are Forever. After thwarting Blofeld's evil plot Bond and Tiffany Case are about to enjoy a shipboard dinner on the balcony of their cabin. The waiters arrive with dinner, but the waiters are none other than the evil pair, Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd. Mr. Wint opens a bottle of Mouton Rothschild.

To get the dialog right I've copied the following from IMDB -- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt00.../quotes?ref_=tt_ql_3

[Bond tastes the Mouton Rothschild wine served]

James Bond: The wine is quite excellent. Although for such a grand meal I would have expected a claret.

Mr. Wint: But of course. Unfortunately our cellar is poorly stocked with clarets.

James Bond: Mouton Rothschild IS a claret. And, I've smelled that aftershave before, and both times - I've smelled a rat.

Quite amusing considering it's my 2 1/2 year olds favourite movie.


Always loved the last lines from the critic Anton Ego, it holds true to wine critics as well...

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face is that, in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new, an extra-ordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto: 'Anyone can cook.' But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau's, who is, in this critic's opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau's soon, hungry for more."
