Explanation:
I am not sure about the above, but I would consult the European Directive about winemaking and sparkling wine
http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/lif/dat/1999/en_399R1493.htm...

Eurolex has the advantage that you can go from one language to the other very easily

Disgorging is how "sboccatura" is translated in this directive, but I would check it out to make sure that it refers to the same operation.

Explanation:
I found that sboccatura means:
Operazione dello sboccare un fiasco o una bottiglia | Liquido che viene espulso in tal modo: bere, gettare via, la sboccatura.

and for sboccare:
to pour off/to remove (part of the liquid) from a container
sboccare una damigiana/un fiasco to pour off some liquid from a demijohn/flask

sboccare (togliere liquido da) to pour off (st.) from.

tirage


Explanation:
This is \"cross-wise\" help, but you may want to explore the French term \"tirage\". Here\'s the definition: \"pulling\" or \"drawing\", this refers either to simply drawing wine from the barrel for bottling or for the process in the making of sparkling wine of adding a mixture that includes fermentable sugar and yeast -- called dosage, or liqueur de tirage -- to induce the secondary fermentation. This is part of the method to make Champagne.

Explanation:
I think the term is the OPPOSITE of what's been asked. According to Fogwell's Wine Guide:
disgorgement: A step in producing sparkling wines by means of the méthode champenoise to REMOVE traces of yeast left over from the secondary fermentation.
