Water is the only substance which expands when it's cooled... So the water increases in volume, ad hence breaks the bottle if there is no space in the bottle...

And even if it is not fully filled, there is air in it which cannot escape die to the cork, so it gets compressed to the limit and eventually the water, which turns into ice, breaks the bottle...
