From my recollection of geometry (and the results of my google search ), it would seem that bulk aging reduces the surface area of the wine exposed to air (i.e. a 6-gal carboy with a 1.75" diameter ~ 2.41 sq.in. versus 30 bottles with 0.75" diameters ~ 13.25 sq.in. total. All are approximations.).

Does anyone have any experience or opinions on this?

Thanks in advance!
