We've ensured that the wines, like the man, will have depth, energy and precision; pairing each of the classic appellations to one of the actors who played 007 over the course of the series. Then we will cross the rivers to find St-Emilion and Pomerol, two places where the wines are lusher, rounder and smoother in texture. Just as elegant and powerful.
