Abacus Capital manages fine wine collections through its Vitis Fine Wine Collections. Vitis focuses on the top Grand Cru Bordeaux wines, purchasing when first released as futures and mostly through first tranche allocations.
In addition to the left bank Premier Cru wines, namely Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Chateau Latour, Chateau Margaux, Chateau Haut Brion, Vitis collects top right bank wines from Chateau Ausone, Chateau Cheval Blanc and Chateau Petrus, as well as Sauterne Premium Cru Supérieur Chateau d’Yquem.
Vitis also selects the top two dozen other Bordeaux producers in any given vintage. Selections are made based on the Chateau’s history and reputation, vintage quality and critics’ wine scores.
