The fun part: We split the wine into two different lots of bubbles. One is a straight-up blanc de blanc with zero dosage (that is, no added sweetness). We call this one Brut Zero, and it's as bright and lively as we had hoped. To the other half, we added a bit of Pinot noir and a slight dosage, to soften the palate weight a bit and to give it a pretty pinkish hue. We're thrilled with both wines and are eager to share them with you!
