Definizione

A special rack used in the traditional process of riddling (the removal of dead yeast cells) bottles of Champagne and sparkling wine made according to the methode Champenoise. 1

Nota

The pill that cured this particular headache came from the house of Veuve Clicquot, where the process of remuage - which best translates to 'riddling' in English - using a pupitre was developed. Cutting circular holes in an upended kitchen table, 19th-century cellar master Antoine Müller not only made the prototype of all pupitres - essentially wooden boards holding dozens of bottles […] - but he and Madame Clicquot also demonstrated how by gradually turning and upending the bottles, the sediment could be encouraged down into the neck of the bottle, ready for removal. 2

Contesto

Pupitres are slowly being replaced by gyropalettes, which are lare machines that automate this process. 3
