Hergé’s favorite champagne (Tintin)
It was in 1945 that Henry and Yvonne Brochet Hervieux started the production of their magnificent champagnes "Premier Cru" under the name, BROCHET-HERVIEUX. Discerning champagne lovers discovered the new winehouse and they soon became loyal customers. Herge, who both created and draw the Tintin character, loved champagne and especially the one from Brochet-Hervieux. Tintin's "father" was actually so inspired, that the champagne appeared in one of his his comic books. In 1952, the Champagne Brochet Hervieux go to the moon, actually before Armstrong, in "Destination Moon". In this comic, Captain Haddock gets the champagne cork on his face when he tries to open the bottle. (page 55).
The Champagne Brochet Hervieux came up with the idea to create a special "cuvée" called "Destination moon" and which was issued in 3000 units.
