Broad, slightly reduced yellow peach fruit comes across as a bit heavy for Chevalier, perhaps due to the element of leesy reduction. Could use a bit more cut for its size.

(BH89-92 points) A pungent nose is dominated by oak toast and reduction and about all that can be said for the underlying fruit is that it appears to be quite ripe.

This is certainly impressive, indeed even imposing but the usual refinement of a classic Chevalier is missing.
