disgorgement

Definition

Wine

  • a step in the traditional méthode champenoise of making sparkling wine in which the liquid and sediment in the neck of the bottle are frozen and the ice ‘plug’ is removed. Extra wine is then added, in a process called dosage, to make up for the liquid lost in the ice removed, before the bottle is finally corked.
