The Chemistry of Champagne

Ah, champagne -the soda pop of wine. But it’s not just carbonated wine, because we could do that with a Soda Stream (not recommended). There are 600 different chemical compounds that make champagne what it is. This video from Reactions, the video channel of the American Chemical Society, explains how champagne gets its bubbles. Understanding the science may enhance your New year toast! (Thanks, Elaine!)
