Some things in the new Bond movie are the same, he still drives an Aston Martin and has a penchant for dangerous gadgets, but some things are definitely different. The new blond Bond even has a new drink. Bond has been linked with Bollinger but now has a new wine favorite. Decanter reports
that Daniel Craig's Bond drinks Chateau Angelus
, the 1982 Angelus. The wine is featured during Bond's dinner with Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green. The 1982 isn't easy to find but can be bought for around $220 a bottle
. Bollinger is still in the movie briefly, Bond orders a bottle of the Bollinger Grande Année (no year given but usually priced around $80 for the more recent vintages). Maybe this will bring a little much needed attention to French wine which has been suffering from an image problem of late.
