Moët & Chandon’s ‘Greatness Since 1998’ champagne was specifically created to pay tribute to Roger Federer
The magnum bottle is wrapped in a black leather band individually crafted by French artisans to resemble the grip on Federer’s racket. The tennis legend’s signature is hand-embossed on this wrap that unravels to reveal a second hand-written signature on the label. Hot-stamped in gold on the inside of the bottle’s tie, an iconic part of the House label, figures Roger Federer’s message: ‘Dreams do come true’. These are the same words he chose to express his joy when last February he became, once again, the world’s No. 1 tennis player.
This special bottle is filled with one of the House’s most accomplished vintage champagnes, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1998, the 65th vintage since it was founded in 1743. This brut champagne is crafted exclusively from grapes harvested in 1998, the same year that Roger Federer launched his brilliant professional career. As such, it is the House champagne that has tracked 20 years of exceptional achievements by Roger Federer, and is perfectly suited to celebrate his incomparable career successes.
Only 20 numbered editions have been produced and Moët & Chandon will donate all profits from their sale to the Roger Federer Foundation. This charitable organisation was founded in 2003 by the Swiss tennis player whose philanthropic mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged youth through education in six countries in Southern Africa and Switzerland.
