Yes. The half bottle tastes like it has about 10 minutes of air. So, if your original bottle needed 30 minutes for the funk to blow off, the 3-week-old 375ml will need about 15 minutes. Older wines will have a much shorter drinking timeframe(15-30 minutes rather than 30-60 minutes).
Drinking a full bottle where I live (over 8000 feet altitude), would put me under the table every time. This method also allows me to taste the wine with two different kinds of food.
