Remhoogte, Bonne Nouvelle 750ml 2005South Africa, Stellenbosch
'The 2005 Bonne Nouvelle was the first overseen by Michel’s wingman, Thierry Harberer. It has impressive precision on the nose with dark cherries, dark chocolate and a touch of scorched earth. The palate is soft and rounded on the entry, very well balanced, caressing in the mouth with a plush, cocoa-tinged finish that slips down the throat beautifully. Bonne Nouvelle is the result of the partnership between Murray Boustred and Michel Rolland. The vineyard stands at the foot of the stony, steep incline on the Simonsberg Mountain located on the Remhoogte Wine Estate. There are 30-hectares under vine and “Bonne Nouvelle” represents a winery selection that is raised for 12 to 15-months in 50% new French oak. It is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage, though the latter has been reduced in recent vintages from 20% to between 5 and 10%.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 90/100
