The things you find in old houses...

 

Stumbled across a perfect unopened bottle of 1937 Geisweiler & Fils burgundy and tried to find information on it but can't really find anything on that date of a bottle. Perhaps there are some knowledgeable Burgundy drinkers amongst us that could shed a bit of light onto it?

yeah, but that is obviously not the same brand in question

 

I'm also interested in a bit of background on it as well

I am not sure if old Burgundy throws lees the way old Port and Claret do; I think that it does. Be careful if you intend to drink it, you will possibly need to decant it before drinking. If the bottle was resting on its side all this time, it would be well to put it back in that position so that the cork doesn't dry out (I know you had to put it upright to photograph it).

 

I took a glance at the Wine Spectator website, they have forums with a buy/sell sub-forum, if no one here is able to help you it might be advisable to check over there.

What a cool find, regardless of whether it ends up being a finely aged wine or not. Did you find it stored on its side or upright? And I'm curious about the level of liquid in the bottle. This can inform you of how much evaporation occurred during storage which can have a negative impact on taste. I'm not an experienced Burgundy drinker or wine pricer so I won't hazard any guesses as to it's taste or value, but I stick by my first assessment--what a cool find!

 

PS: You might call your local wine shop to find out what they might know about your little treasure.
