A family business for five generations, Domaine Comte Senard produces white and red Burgundy wines. On the Côte de Beaune, Philippe Senard vinifies quality fruit to create aromatic, complex wines. Lorraine Senard, Philippe's daughter, joined the domaine in 2005. Her aim is to preserve the spirit of the great Corton wines. She works with respect for the terroir and traditions of her ancestors. Domaine Comte Senard also holds the monopoly on Clos des Meix, a Corton Grand Cru created by Jules Senard in 1857.
