Exclusive semileptonic B decays with a D*+ meson in the final state have been studied using the ARGUS detector at the DORIS II storage ring. The branching ratio for the decay B0 → D*+- v, where B → D ℓ- v has been observed. From an angular analysis of the cascade B0 → D*+ (→ D0 π +) ℓ-v the forward-backward asymmetry AFB and the D*+ polarization parameter α have been determined to be AFB=0.20±0.08±0.06 and α=1.1±0.4±0.2.
