French term or phrase: L'heure de quatre heure
L'heure de quatre heure

No particular context - it is a stand alone sentence in a description of a wine selection pack.

Any help much appreciated.

English translation:Cocktail wine
Explanation:
Four o'clock is the traditional time in France for the afternoon snack, or goûter. When I was a kid, that was usually jam or jelly on a piece of baguette or a croissant. My French friends, the last time I was there, served light, semi-sweet wines, some crême de cassis used a syrup in water, cookies and petits fours for a goûter. The closest I can come, for English, would be **cocktail wine**
