Regarding Violet Beauregarde



After being inundated by ads for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, (by the way, my second all time least favorite Tim Burton film, and I am or was, a big fan of Burton. Even my 4 year old preferred Gene Wilder's version, which I can't stand either. Neither film did the book justice, but I digress...) I had a thought about the oft forgotten Violet Beauregarde in reqards to wine. In the scene where she tastes the magical gum, she tastes an array of different foods in succession. This is an excellent visualization for the reality of what the best wines will offer from a flavor perspective. It's not uncommon to stumble across fully realized flavors that go beyond hints,rather offer a detailed account of a food memory. Now, how to make a Meursault flavored gum?

Lemme know if you figure out the Mersault gum. In the meantime, have you heard of the Jelly Belly Wine Bar? OMG, it works on the same premise as when you used to make 'banana split' or whatever flavor in your mouth by mixing different jelly belly beans, only the recipies are for *wine*. Even specific appellations, I shit you not! You can check it out on the WineX.com site, or Google it. It's a riot!

How can you not like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Gene Wilder was brilliant and the story is tightly woven around his performance in the film.

Of course, I didn't watch it after having read the book, so I can understand where you might be coming from.
