To celebrate Roger Federer’s 20-year career, Moët & Chandon has announced the release of an exclusive limited edition of 20 magnum bottles titled “Greatness since 1998”. All profits from the sale of this special cuvée will be donated to the Roger Federer Foundation, which helps underprivileged youth.
For 20 years Swiss champion Roger Federer has embodied excellence and elegance like nobody else, both on and off tennis courts around the world. During these two exceptional decades Roger Federer has won 97 ATP singles titles and 20 Grand Slam singles titles. To celebrate this extraordinary milestone, Moët & Chandon is paying tribute to the Maison’s global brand ambassador by creating an exclusive limited edition titled “Greatness since 1998”. Only 20 magnum bottles will be filled with vintage champagne from the year Roger Federer launched his professional career. Made exclusively with grapes from the 1998 harvest, this is one of Moët & Chandon’s most accomplished vintage champagnes and the 65th vintage year in the Maison’s history.
Each bottle is entirely wrapped with a refined black leather band hand-crafted by French artisans, like a grip on a tennis racket. The Swiss champion’s signature and the bottle’s name, “Greatness since 1998”, are embossed on the prestigious edition.
“Moët & Chandon is honored to celebrate Roger Federer on this extraordinary 20-year milestone by donating 100 percent of the profits from the sale of ‘Greatness since 1998’ to the Roger Federer Foundation,” says Stéphane Baschiera, President and CEO of Moët & Chandon.
Since 2003 the foundation has helped improve the lives of some 870,000 underprivileged children aged 3 to 12 through education in six countries in Africa (South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe), as well as in Switzerland.
“This year we are aiming to touch the lives of one million children. I am thankful for this generous donation by Moët & Chandon, which goes a long way in helping us meet that ambitious goal,” says Roger Federer.
