Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru 1997, Potinet-Ampeau

Back in 1993 I had an excellent dinner accompanied by Potinet-Ampeau's glorious 1976 and 1978 Meursault-Perrières. In 2006 I bought 8 bottles of their Meursault-Charmes from the domaine stretching back to 1966! Unfortunately... having tasted three of the Potinet-Ampeau Meursault-Charmes from different vintages, including this more recent 1997, I have to conclude that they have serious problems in the way they cellar their wines. Its possible that the wines got toasted in the super-hot 2003 summer. But I can't recommend anybody buy wines from them that pre-date 2003. Meursault-Charmes should not be used for pasta sauces and risotto alla milanese but what else can you do with chardonnay sherry?
