A lottery and public subscription
Saint Basle was already considered a person who performed miracles during his lifetime in the 7th century. When he died, a church was dedicated to him in Bouzy. The village later prospered, and the church became too small in the 19th century. In 1851, one of the parishioners, Mr. Yvonnet, won the golden ingot local lottery and donated money to build a new church. The rest of the amount required was gathered via a public subscription. The old church was destroyed, but its gray and red marble altar was preserved along with a 15th-century statuette of the Virgin Mary.
