More information

The Cuvée X from Knipser is a red wine of monumental size, which can only be found on the Atlantic Ocean in France. Probably the only German red wine that can compete with Pauillac, Margaux and Pomerol. The Knipser brothers knew perfectly well that this wine, made from different Cabernet varieties and Merlot, in the style of a Bordeaux, would transport you to the wine topliga.

In the glass comes the Knipser Cuvée X with dense ruby red color and purple reflections. The nose reveals unprecedented strength paired with a bitter-dark fruit and a variety of spicy aromas such as cigar crate, coffee, tobacco and spices alongside many red fruits.

On the palate, this lace cuvée from Knisper delights completely through never-ending length, a vital fruit acid and harmonious tannins.

Vinification of Knipser Cuvée


The expansion of this cuvée is based exclusively on solid craftsmanship, coupled with unique climatic conditions and a surface, almost like in Bordeaux. Controlled inactivity in the basement brings the best result into the glass. All grape varieties are characteristic of the fact that they grow on limestone soils and the grapes are destemmed before mashing, i.e. separated from the stalk structure. This creates a particularly fine tanning frame. The ageing in French oak barriques of 225 litres capacity, with a maturity of up to 24 months before filling, results in long-lasting and intensely fragrant wines. Most of the Cuvée X is made up of the Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up about 45% of the assembly. Approximately 33% are Merlot, plus 22% Cabernet Franc.

Food recommendation for the Cuvée X from Knipser

The best way to enjoy this Palatinate star in the wine sky is at a festively laid table, with veal stews or an oven-cooked lamb leg with Mediterranean vegetables and a strong jus. This power pack also doesn't have to hide from short-fried ones, such as entrecote or fillet
