Domaine Comte Senard is a family owned wine estate in the commune of Aloxe-Corton in Côte de Beaune in Burgundy (Bourgogne). It is in the village of Aloxe, just below the Corton hill and the Corton grand cru vineyards.
The winery now has 9 hectares of vineyards in a number of different Burgundy appellations, including Bourgogne grand crus, premier crus and village appellations, e.g. Clos de Meix, Corton Clos du Roi, Corton Bressandes, and Corton Charlemagne. The Clos des Meix is adjoining the buildings in the village. Around 20 different wines are made.
The wines used to be made and aged in the ancient vaulted cellars, dating from the 13th century, under the house in the village but modern requirements have led to production being moved to newer winery facilities in Beaune. The old cellar is now used for some bottle aging and to display old barrels. The white wines are exclusively made from chardonnay, of course, and the red wines from pinot noir. Winemaking is today under the responsibility of count Philippe Senard and his daughter Lorraine.
They also have a small table d'hote restaurant in the village where one can eat traditional Burgundian food matched with a wide range of excellent Burgundy wines served by the glass.
