Scientists discover that you can hear how good your champagne is

If you thought the price was the only indicator of quality when it comes to champagne, you clearly aren’t listening well enough.

It turns out that the sound of the champagne bottle popping could hold just as many clues about its value as the cost. 

According to researchers from the University of Texas at Austin, it has long been known that the size of a sparkling wine’s bubbles can say a lot about its quality. 

Various sized bubbles will produce different resonant sounds. 

Researchers have employed underwater recording techniques in an attempt to determine if they can use auditory methods to determine the caliber of various wines.

Researchers believe that their newfound methods could be utilized in quality assurance programs.

But, for most of us, we’re just happy to raise a toast!
