Russ, I must admit though that my fetish has bitten me in the ass more than once. I have let bottles go too long. I crowed over a bottle of '68 BV that I brought to Matt's and the sucker was brown. Funny thing though, the '68 and the '70 were the "great" vintages, I had a lot of 1970 but it started to go a long time ago and I drank it all in time (whew!). Not so the 68. But a friend served me a 1969 last month, which is not supposed to be a great vintage, and it was peeeeeerfect. The idea that it would have outlasted the 68 or the 70 is astounding to me.
