Dom Pérignon Champagne

Dom Pérignon Champagne has appeared in several James Bond movies and one Ian Fleming novel.

The literary James Bond drinks Dom Pérignon in the novel Moonraker, when he has two bottles of the Dom Pérignon '46, suggested to Bond by the wine-waiter at Blades during the dinner with M.

Dom Pérignon champagnes used in the movies:

Dr. No: Dom Pérignon '55 (Dr No “That’s a Dom Pérignon ’55, it would be a pity to break it.” Bond answers he prefers the '53).

Goldfinger: Bond and Jill Masterson drink a bottle of Dom Pérignon '53 while Goldfinger loses a game of gin. When Bond wants to get another bottle from the refrigerator, he says "My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!"

Thunderball: Bond orders Beluga Caviar and Dom Pérignon '55 for him and Domino at Café Martinique, Nassau, after beating Emilio Largo at baccarat in the casino.

You Only Live Twice: Dom Pérignon '59. Bond: "Well, if you insist."

On Her Majesty's Secret Service: Bond orders a Dom Pérignon '57 in the Casino restaurant for Tracy and himself and has it brought to room 423 with caviar for two. In Blofeld's lair at Piz Gloria, Tracy and Blofeld drink Dom Pérignon and Tracy uses two bottles to fight off her attackers.

Live And Let Die: Bond and Rosie Carver share a bottle of Dom Pérignon during their picnic, just before she gets killed. A little earlier, Bond orders Bollinger Champagne, slightly chilled in his San Moniquan Hotel room.

Man with the Golden Gun: Bond and Andrea Anders (Maud Adams) first drink Dom Pérignon in the Peninsula Hotel. Later: Nick Nack offers Bond a bottle of Dom Pérignon '64 (Bond says he prefers the '62).

The Spy Who Loved Me: Bond has a bottle of Dom Pérignon (vintage unknown) in his train cabin and smashes it on Jaws' head. Later Bond mentions a Dom Pérignon '52 when he says about Stromberg, “Any man who drinks Dom Pérignon ’52 can’t be all bad.”

Dom Perignon is available online at for example The Finest Bubble in the UK or The Whiskey Exchange.

Too yeasty for my taste.

I've found a site with great prices for Dom Pérignon
Taittinger The movies or rather the need to finance them with product placement has allowed Dom Perignon to become, in the public's eye, James Bond's champagne of choice.  But in fact his champagne of choice is Tattinger In Fleming's very first novel about the suave secret agent Bond, just prior to defeating Le Chiffre at the gaming tables of Royal Les Eaux, enjoys with Vesper, a glass of Taittenger: "With his finger on the page, Bond turned to the sommelier: "The Taittinger '45?" “A fine wine monsieur,” said the sommelier. “But if Monsieur will permit,” he pointed with his pencil, “the Brut Blanc de Blanc 1943 of the same marque is without equal.” Bond smiled. “So be it,” he said.  “That is not a well-known brand,” Bond explained [to Vesper], “but it is probably the finest champagne in the world.” He grinned suddenly at the touch of pretension in his remark." Then in Moonraker, Fleming's third novel about Bond, for 007's first encounter with the principle villain of the piece: “Then what?” asked M. “Champagne? Personally I’m going to have a half-bottle of claret. The Mouton Rothschild ’34, please, Grimley. But don’t pay any attention to me, James. I’m an old man. Champagne’s no good for me. We’ve got some good champagnes, haven’t we, Grimley?  Non of that stuf your always telling me about, I'am afraid, James.  Don't often see it in England.  Taittinger wasn't it?” Bond smiled at M's memory. "Yes" he said ... The wine-waiter was pleased. “If I may suggest it, sir, the Dom Perignon ’46. I understand that France only sells it for dollars, sir, so you don’t often see it in London. I believe it was a gift from the Regency Club in New York, sir. I have some on ice at the moment. It’s the Chairman’s favorite, and he’s told me to have it ready every evening in case he needs it.” Bond smiled his agreement. “So be it, Grimley, “said M. “The Dom Perignon. Bring it straight away, would you?”4 So yes he, Bond, did drink Dom Perignon but the first champagne he drinks is Taittinger and if Blades had stocked it I am sure that've would have drank with M on that fatefully evening.
What yr old dom perignon did James Bond drink?
