The term 'late-disgorged' is English for récemment dégorgé, indicating a wine that has been kept on its lees for much longer than usual (up to as much as ten years) between bottling and disgorging. The wine feeds off its lees throughout this time, acquiring great complexity, depth and richness. The sharp intake of oxygen when the wine is finally disgorged (ie the temporary 'bottling cork' is pulled and replaced with a permanent Champagne cork, ready for shipping) adds a welcome note of freshness that highlights the wine's complexity. One of the best known late-disgorged Champagnes is Bollinger RD, first launched in 1963 with the 1952 vintage.

Since the original Olympian gods were swallowed at birth by their father, Kronos (sometimes spelt Cronos or Cronus), and were then disgorged after being fed a potion or alternatively, Zeus cut open the stomach of his father, and the Olympians came out that way. All the Olympians were disgorged out in the reverse order of which they had been swallowed, making the oldest, Hestia (goddess of the hearth) the youngest, and the youngest child Zeus the oldest. The age order after being disgorged by Kronos is as follows: Zeus, Demeter, Hera, Hades, Poseidon and Hestia.
