Rotation of Champagne

In 2012 my wife and I spent our vacation in France, staying a week each in Alsace, Champagne, and Paris. One day we took a winery tour at the Moet-Chandon headquarters in Epernay. A great tour, we highly recommend it. One of the interesting things we saw was a machine that is programmed to rotate champagne bottles in a specific sequence and schedule, so that the sediment collects in the neck and can be removed quickly before re-corking the bottle for finishing.
