A Swiss woman and a Senegalese man walk into a winery... No, this is not the start to some strange joke; rather, it is the unlikely story of Hildegard Horat and her husband, Alioune Diop, proprietors of La Grange de Quatre Sous in the picturesque highlands of the Languedoc. In addition to farming organically, the pair takes judicious freedom in their choice of grape varieties. This unusual blend of Malbec, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc is fermented with native yeast in stainless steel for a maximum expression of young fruit. And now for the punch line: aromas of crushed blackberry, licorice, and pepper in an inky dark yet wholly refreshing rouge. Oddly delicious! –Anthony Lynch
