Just a reminder that an onomatopoeia is basically a word which imitates the natural sounds of a thing. I am not sure what are the possible onomatopoeia associated with the popping out of a champagne bottle. I imagine there are a dozen, but I want the ones that are the most widely used.


You already said it - the best word is pop!

EDIT: J.R. points out that pop the cork is a very common idiomatic expression that describes the opening of a champagne bottle.

    Worth noting (and feel free to add this to your answer if you want): the expression pop the cork is so idiomatic that it even appears in some dictionaries. – J.R. Apr 5 '19 at 19:36
  • Shirley Bassey, a famous Welsh singer, wisely didn't pop her cork for every guy she saw. – Michael Harvey Apr 5 '19 at 20:12
