Switzerland  Valais 

The First white wine in the Electus line, Eclat, comes from the 2014 vintage. It is made from two Valais grape varieties : Petite Arvine and Heida. This dry wine is remarkable for its elegance, beautifully pale colour with green highlights, aromatic notes of lemon, grapefruit and rose, the crispness that recalls the fresh chill of the mountains.I'm not sure I can use the word crystalline for another white after this wine. Thanks to its lovely citrus aromatic persistence it is appreciated as an apéritif wine as well as one that lasts throughout a meal.

There is a depth to this wine, layer upon layer it reveals itself slowly. This is an oaked white but done with such magic I just love it. They made some very unusual choices and the result is... the feel of the breeze coming down from the glaciers on a sun baked summer mountain meadow. It feels Alpine yet it evokes the top whites in Bordeaux. Paradox? You bet! 

The way in which Eclat is made is unique, adding a dash of originality to its character.
