J.F. Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny, price question

I know this is a standout villages wine year in and year out (not unexpected with about half of it comprised of declassified premier cru juice and nearly all of it from old vines), is likely the best produced in Chambolle and is among the strongest produced in the entire Côte de Nuits. Still, the price is a shocker for a wine at the villages level. The lowest I've seen the 2001 is ~$100 and the 2005 seems to be $125 and up. While Domaine J.F. Mugnier produces some of the finest red Burgundies, the prices for their entry-level bottlings seem awfully high. The 2001 is drinking wonderfully regardless of the price, but has anyone found this wine for less?

Perhaps Mugnier's Nuit-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale represents better QPR. Unfortunately, QPR in Burgundy seems to fail in comparison to other regions.
