Don't get me wrong, vintages matter, but there is often some distinctions in sub-appellations.  Case in point, for me, 1983 Margaux is often better than the more heralded 1982 vintage.  If nothing else, this wine is a testament to the 1983 vintage in Margaux.  Ruby in color with some browning, mostly opaque and flat.  The nose is classic with cherries, black cherries, cigar box and a funk/earthiness.  Medium bodied.  Tart acidity.  On the palate, black cherries with some underlying funk.  Depth and complexity.  Moderate finish.  While certainly past prime, there was a lot to offer here.  Served with a cheese course and then a chocolate dessert, it worked better with the cheeses.  Happy to drink this anytime.
