Transfer Process
The transfer process is the short cut to the Méthode Champenoise which involves a secondary fermentation in a small bottle; here, though, the clearing/separation of the yeasts is handled in a batch-method rather than individually. The end result is that there is usually less of a Yeasty character in transfer process sparkling wines than in Méthode Champenoise versions (usually because the yeasts are left in contact longer in the case of the latter than the former).
