The LHCb experiment is a general purpose forward spectrometer operating at the Large Hadron Collider, optimized for the study of B and D hadrons. LHCb collected 1.0 fb-1 of integrated luminosity during 2011 data taking, collecting unprecedented large samples of B hadron decays to final states involving charmed hadrons. These decays offer many complementary measurements of CP violation and CKM matrix parameters, and serve as a laboratory for testing effective theories of hadron decays. We present a selection of new world leading results in these types of decays, including first observations of new decay modes, world best branching ratio measurements and studies of resonant structure.
