Definizione

An operation carried out by a skilled workman during the making of sparkling wines by bottle fermentation. The cork and the sediment deposited on it is removed from each bottle. 1

Nota

Disgorging is essential but disruptive because it briefly exposes the wine to air, increasing its natural oxidation rate and thus (perhaps) reducing its ageing potential. It requires extreme dexterity and speed to remove the crown cap and quickly dislodge yeast sediment from the bottle without losing any wine. Freezing the sediment in the neck of the bottle provides a much tidier and more efficient method. The pressure from the champagne forces rapid ejaculation of the sediment when the crown cap is removed. 2

Contesto

All Equinox Cuvees receive a minimum of four years aging "en tirage" prior to hand-riddling and disgorging, and an additional six months "on cork" prior to release. 3
