Bottle missing its cork

At a party recently, a friend went to open a 94 cab only to find the bottle had no cork. Somehow, the capsule had contained the wine all by itself even though the bottle was stored upside down. My husband thinks there was a little sediment plug to prevent leakage too.

Several professional winemakers at the party were dumbstruck given modern corking processes. My question is, have you ever opened a corkless bottle?
