Fleurie is a commune in the Rhône department in eastern France.

Medieval charters record Fleurie as Floriacum.[1]

Fleurie AOC is a division of the Beaujolais wine region. In the 1970s the British Conservative politician and tax fugitive Ernest Marples (1907–78) owned a Fleurie château and vineyard, to which he retired after fleeing from an Inland Revenue investigation in 1975.[2]
