Pont du Diable Malbec 2011 Wine Review
The word Pont du Diable Malbec 2011 translates into the devil’s bridge and its name is inspired from an ancient myth that has been related to people for centuries. In the 14th century, the Pont Valentre was taking so long to reach completion that the chief of the stone masons was rumored to have been coerced into a deal with the devil to ensure that the building did complete for real. About five centuries later, a couple of masons avenged the chief stone mason by making the sculpture of the devil who tricked him and thereby believing that they have now trapped that devil. This sculpture was made in one of the towers of the bridge. It is dubbed as the devil bridge because it has been tamed for years and years; only then has the rich color infused out of the fruits and into the irresistible wine. Twenty percent of the wine is aged in oak barrels which gives the wine the extra depth that has made it so memorable for everybody who takes one sip of it.
