Yes, I'm essentially the only drinker in the house and do not like the health ramifications of finishing a 750ml bottle. I only drink on Fridays and Saturdays, but even then it's a lot. However, I spit before and after dinner and it's rare to have a bottle where I absolutely *need* to finish the entire thing. For most of my wines, I've gotten the point and the added evolution is limited as I get closer to the end of the bottle.

However, I don't have Chaves and Chambertins from the 1990s sitting around my house the way you do. I can see how you would want to enjoy every last drop of those!

I haven't got any wine in the house that I wouldn't willingly drink, but there are some that I'd be comfortable about pouring half the bottle into the cooking and drinking the other half.
