Some pretty good pricing on Grand Cru 05s. No affiliation.

2004 Christian Moreau Chablis les Clos des Hospices
15 btls available
Regular Price: $99.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $75/btl (SAVE 25%!)
BH 93
"As the scores and comments suggest, this is an exceptionally strong set of wines from top to bottom and I encourage readers who may not be familiar with the domaine to give them a try as they offer excellent value as well as fine quality. In particular, the quality of the 2003s vaults them to among the very best wines of the vintage."

2005 Christian Moreau Chablis Blanchots
12 btls available
Regular Price: $72.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $39/btl (SAVE 47%!)
BH 91
"A high-toned and elegant nose featuring moderate wood influence and a touch of reduction plus ripe aromas of pear, white flowers and iodine complements the round, rich, full and sweet flavors that despite the obvious concentration remain relatively delicate on the sappy and dry finish. This is lovely and comes across as classy and understated but not reticent."

2005 Christian Moreau Chablis les Clos
15 btls available
Regular Price: $72.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $49/btl (SAVE 33%!)
BH 93, WS 93
"This possesses the most elegant aromatic profile among these '05s with ultra elegant, even lacy white flower, iodine, spice and sea breeze nuances that complement the focused, powerful and vibrant flavors that possess excellent dry extract and super persistence on the potent and driving finish along with buckets of minerality. This is a terrific effort that should reward 7 to 10 years of cellar time."

2005 Christian Moreau Chablis Valmur
10 btls available
Regular Price: $72.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $49/btl (SAVE 33%!)
BH 92
"Noticeable if soft wood frames the cool green fruit and oyster shell aromas that merge into the notably rich yet sleekly muscular flavors that are more full-bodied than usual for Valmur though the hallmark minerality and youthful finishing austerity are present in force on the seriously long finish. I very much like the style here as there is generosity that marries well with the beautiful delineation. A wine of obvious class and grace but also one that is almost painfully intense so it doesn't lack for punch."

2005 Christian Moreau Chablis Vaudesir
6 btls available
Regular Price: $72.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $39/btl (SAVE 47%!)
BH 91
"Medium wood serves as a background for the very fresh and slightly riper exotic fruit aromas that overlay the surprisingly concentrated flavors that are both precise and wonderfully intense while delivering ample vivacity and minerality on the long finish. This offers very solid mid-palate density despite the young vines and it is so well balanced that it will age effortlessly over the medium term."

2006 Christian Moreau Chablis les Clos des Hospices
29 btls available
Regular Price: $105/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $75/btl (SAVE 29%!)
BH 93
"More subtle if not invisible wood influence frames a similar nose though here the flavors are slightly bigger, indeed to the point where there is almost a robust quality to the slightly rounder and more concentrated mouth coating flavors that culminate in simply huge length. The trade off for the additional size and weight in a vintage like 2006 is that this is not quite as elegant. A choice but a high quality choice!"

2006 Christian Moreau Chablis Valmur
15 btls available
Regular Price: $77.99/btl
Grapes Sale Price: $49/btl (SAVE 37%!)
BH 92
"A discreet touch of wood highlights a layered and high-toned white flower, green fruit and oyster shell and mineral suffused nose that complements perfectly the rich, full, dense and penetrating medium full flavors that ooze dry extract, which gives a sappy and textured quality to the vibrant and impressively long finish. A lovely and admirably well balanced effort."
