Comte Senard

Comte Senard

Domaine Comte Senard was founded in Burgundy in 1857 by Comte Jules Senard, and domaine that was originally founded in Aloxe-Corton in the 13thcentury has now been moved to a more modern estate in Beaune. There is great history behind the vines: rumour has it that the Emperor Charlemagne was very fond of red wines from the area, but his wife the Empress was not so fond of the red stains that subsequently found their way onto his blond beard, and so she persuaded him to plant white vines in his favourite area.
 
The domaine is currently run by Philippe Senard and his daughter Lorraine, and the Domaine des Terregelesses also comes under their wing, as of 1989. The torch has steadily been passed over to Lorraine and these days she is responsible for the winemaking itself. The domaine has a large amount of holdings, including some hefty plots of Grand Cru vineyard, such as a 9 hectare parcel of Corton ‘Clos des Meix.’
