de Bourgogne. A liqueur which is a blend of sugar and yeasts is added to
the wine before bottling. The bottles are then laid down horizontally for 12
months in cool cellars. During this time, second alcoholic fermentation
occurs (the methode champenoise fermentation in the bottles). The
following stage, known as riddling, consists of collecting the deposits of
yeasts which came into contact with the corks. This process requires the
bottles to be tipped onto their sides on riddling racks, with the bottle
necks pointed downwards. Once there is sufficient sedimentation, the
deposits are removed by freezing the end of the bottle neck. The process of
disgorgement (un-blocking and extracting the frozen sediment) then
takes place. The bottles are then topped up with a special liqueur (a
sugar-based preparation blended with matured wine, added for the
commercialization of quality sparkling wines) which enables the
quantity of sugar to be adjusted if necessary.
