Well, Perlitrap, I copied the name of the wine from your title into the Google search box and found this information on the Wine-Searcher site, pretty quickly.  It looks like the value of this wine peaked a few years ago (pre-recession) at a tad under US$200.  Provenance is, of course, everything.  Your pictures show a pretty nice looking bottle.  It appears to have been cared for.  If, in fact, it has been stored under proper conditions, it may have a bit of value.  If you found it in the cabinet over the stove in your aunt's kitchen, it might not be very valuable at all.

I know next to nothing about Burgundy wines.  So, I hope somebody jumps in here and tells us about it.'

I will also let somebody else make suggestions on how you might be able to sell it, if you decide to pursue that idea.

The only note I find is 3 years old and speaks of a wine in decline. Current Wine Market Journal Auction Price is $92

Yeah this wine probably peaked around 2000-2005

Always thought these were funny situations, an esteemed wine that's past its prime. So visually appealing, but not likely satisfying to any of the other senses.

Wow.. a shame to let a wine like this lost that way!

I see you are in the UK.Your best bet if you want to sell it is to put it on www.bidforwine.co.uk.
