In the movie Never Say Never Again (1983), James Bond (Sean Connery) drinks a bottle of Château Cheval Blanc Premier Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion red wine. 

Although Bond is required to change his eating and drinking habits at Shrublands, he has smuggled a large case filled with delicacies into his room, which he shares with Patrica Fearing (Prunella Gee), an osteopath at the health clinic. The case contains a bottle of Absolut Vodka Red Label 100 Proof, the Château Cheval Blanc red wine (including one wineglass and a classic wooden corkscrew), red and blue jars of Beluga caviar, a dozen quail eggs, Angniez crème de foie gras, Patum Peperium (also known as Gentleman's Relish, a type of anchovy paste) and some toast. Unfortunately the year of the wine can't be seen clearly. It looks like 1982, the year before the movie was made, but it could also be a different year.

Bond can be seen drinking a glass of the Château Cheval Blanc wine, when he and Patricia are in bed. 

Château Cheval Blanc (French for "White Horse Castle"), is a wine producer in Saint-Émilion in the Bordeaux wine region of France. The wine is one of only four to receive the highest rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status in the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine, along with Château Angélus (a wine that is enjoyed by James Bond and Vesper in the movie Casino Royale), Château Ausone and Château Pavie.
