Domaine de la Croix Senaillet

The name Domaine de la Croix Senaillet is taken from the name of the cross bestowed upon
the village of Davayé by one of its past mayors; Benoît Senaillet.
Record has it that Benoit Senaillet donated this cross to this vinegrowing village in 1866 to replace one that was destroyed in 1793 during the French Revolution. Tradition has it that since its blessing in 1867, Croix Senaillet has protected the people of the village and all those who pass
by it on their way… Could our estate have been given its name to honour Mr. Senaillet’s spirit
of initiative or his generosity?
Whatever the reason, all the estate’s plots of vines are set around the cross on the slopes
of the village. It is interesting to note that Benoit Senaillet was a contemporary of the poet
Lamartine who lived at the entry to the village.

Domaine de la Croix Senaillet is in Southern Burgundy, in Davayé in the very heart
of the Mâconnais Cru area. This little village
close by to Mâcon, to the west of the Saône
River, is steeped in history. In actual fact
the estate is right near the famous prehistoric
site of Solutré. The climb up this spur of rock
that is 492 metres above sea-level gives a wide
ranging view over villages and the rolling
vine-covered Mâconnais hills.
