I was recently left 3 bottles of wine by a friend of mine whom happed to be a wine lecturer and specialist! I was just intrigued in what I have! I can not find the maker Jules Verreau anywere!! There a two different wines both by the same maker with out dates. One is a Corton and the other a richebourg. See pictures

Fascinating. I wonder if they are UK bottled by the Associated Wine Merchants of Manchester mentioned on the label. They may well be in that case rather fortified but will probably have lasted effortlessly and may provide drinking with a real sense of history. It isn't likely that they would fetch much money, particularly without a vintage label, so I'd suggest having fun with them.
Would you tell us your friend's name? it may possibly give a further clue.

Thanks for your replies His name was, Arthur Marshall! He had a company called Marshall & co then in 1955 became a manager of a wine shop called Lupton's based in Ilkley West yorkshire. Just very facinated by the possible history of these bottles! When I got them they were flat still in the lupton and sons wooden crate!

It’s maybe surprising how little info I can find on the producer. Only one reference so far which dates at 1937 so gives that ballpark date Others mentioned

2181
An Mixed Parcel Comprising: unmarked, presumed vintage or tawny port (x7); Jules Verreau Vosne Romanee 1937; presumed Burgundy, perished labels (some dates clear and read 1937) (x5.5) (thirteen and a half bottles)
U: sold as viewed, poor or non-existent labels, capsules cracked, some signs of seepage but levels are mostly fair to good (most ports are upper shoulder or above) £300 - 500
