Gyropalette

French term (German: Kreiselpalette) for a powered by electric motors device as a mechanical alternative to the complex manual remuage (Shaking) in the production of sparkling wine ( champagne. sparkling wine ). The bottles are stuck in a cage-like metal frame and are rotated periodically so that the yeast bottoms up for later dégorgement (Remove) collects. The device or process was registered in 1968 by the two French winemakers Claude Cazals and Jacques Ducion for a patent. The oenological station of Champagne shows very quickly great interest, signed an exclusive contract and made experiments. The system did not prevail until the mid-1970s.
