Goldeneye (1995)

This entry in our James Bond series features an episode that enlivened the franchise:  Goldeneye, Pierce Brosnan’s solid debut.  Brosnan was built to play 007, and he looks relaxed and ready here.

To pair with this above-average Bond, we drink a delicious Chianti from Selvapiana.  Italian reds pop up throughout the series, both books and movies.  In From Russia with Love, Bond catches the bad guy when he orders Chianti with fish.  (Although reds and fish aren’t the faux pas they used to be.)  He also drinks Chianti in For Your Eyes Only and A View to a Kill.
