This is surprisingly elegant and expressive for young Bâtard, indeed it's almost as elegant as the Chevalier with a highly complex nose featuring citrus, fennel, floral and brown sugar hints that continue onto the powerful, textured and mouth coating flavors, all wrapped in a punchy and sappy finish. I'm impressed by the level of dry extract and ultimately this is as good as the Chevalier in 2005.
