I have seen this once or twice with some bottles which have been stored for a long time.
May I ask a couple of questions?
What are the fill levels like in these particular bottles?
Where are they stored and under what conditions? (light, temperature .. etc)
No matter how well sealed the bottles are, some evaporation will occur and it will vary between individual bottles.
I have found no exact pattern to which suffer the most evaporation, but the 'condensation' effect has usually been on those which have suffered a little more than others.
What are the fill levels like in these particular bottles? They are all at normal height fill levels for brand new bottles.
Where are they stored and under what conditions? They are all stored in my pantry which is pretty cool and there is absolutely no sunlight accessible in the room
I think I will take them back to the store I purchased them from and exchange them. I bought most of them within the last 6 months so I would not expect to see this happening so soon. I have many bottles and am not sure if I will get to them within the next year or two.
I have just had a quick cursory glance through my own collection and from what I can see, none of my own bottles are currently suffering from this, even though I have looked at ones with varying fill levels.
If these are bottles which are currently available, then yes, why not see if they can be exchanged.
To be honest, I have seen this in bottles in the past and I don't know exactly what causes it. Whether temperature, humidity, temp. & humidity fluctuations, loose fitting corks / tops causing air contamination ........ maybe others on the forum can help here.
