  offramp: It is a really good game.

Firstly, I've always thought that if your opponent plays the French and gives you a chance to play the Alekhine-Chatard Attack, one should always play it. It can be a real upset to s player looking for a quiet game.

A thing I liked about this game was that white doubled rooks on the h-file, which looked great. But black (of course) castled queenside. So white was preparing Rh1-Ra1-Ra3 followed by doubling on the a-file! In fact white needed 4 rooks to have the perfect position - 2 on the a-file and 2 on the h-file.

Anyway, it's always nice to see the French totally dismantled.
