Dosage

Dosage is involved in the creation of a Champagne. You can Read about the entire process, but near the end, a plug of yeast has to be removed from the bottle. The removal process is called disgorgement. The neck of the bottle is stuck into this machine, which freezes it. When the cap is removed, the frozen plus of sludge is kicked out, a "dosage" of Champagne is added to fill in the space in the bottle, and it is corked with the standard, large Champagne cork. The Dosage is a house secret for each Champagne house, and is a blend of Champagne, sugar, and sometimes even brandy.
