Fleurie, Beaujolais, France
Fleurie is a well known Cru Beaujolais wine appellation for red wines from the Gamay grape variety. The wines are some of the most highly regarded in the region, which is sometimes referred to as "The Queen of Beaujolais".
A Fleurie is typically light, silky and supple, with characteristic florality and bright aromas of blueberries and red fruit. Fleurie's widespread recognition is often attributed to its evocative name. However the region is actually named after a Roman general, Floricum, rather than for any floral traits in the wine.
