smoke from the bottle

(I think it's best to sing that subject line to the tune of Smoke on the Water really)

I just opened a bottle of 2010 Anne Aime pinot noir and smoke came out of the bottle. Bizarre. I've never seen that happen. It's under screwcap. Some smoke continued to swirl for about 10 seconds in the neck of the bottle.

I poured a couple of glasses and it smells ok. I'll report back after tasting it when it has warmed up.

Is this something that happens and just the first time I've noticed it, or is it really weird?
