French term or phrase: dégorgement à la volée
This is to say nothing of the dégorgement à la volée outclassed by that of à la glace: when this new technique was introduced, the high priests of the temple of bubbles rent their clothes, believing that the product would never again be the same

Reference information:
'Once the sediment is sitting securely behind the seal closure it is a simple process to release the cork or cap and thus allow the pressure built up within to push out the wine, complete with sediment. This process, the dégorgement a la volée, has however been largely superseded by the dégorgement a la glace, although there are a number of producers, largely small family firms, still using the former method. The added finesse with the a la glace technique is achieved by freezing the liquid - complete with sediment of course - in the neck of the bottle.'
