Fleurie stands for "flowery". It perfectly describes what the wine is: spring flowers, charming and elegant.

Fleurie is a very fruity wine.

It is often considered as the Queen of Beaujolais. While Moulin à Vent would be the King.

Fleurie should be drunk young but it can last a few years when the vintage is good.

Fleurie is one of the most expensive Beaujolais wine.
