Saint-Julien-de-Concelles is a commune in the Loire-Atlantique department in western France.

Saint-Julien-de-Concelles is the home of the popular beurre blanc sauce. The sauce was first discovered in a small restaurant on the banks of the river Loire.[1] The town is also one of France's main growers of the mâche (lambs lettuce). Its flat and sandy land is suited to growing vegetables, such as leeks, and some flowers.[citation needed] Saint-Julien-de-Concelles also grows the grapes on its hills that produce local Muscadet wine.

A large lake, known as the Plan d'Eau du Chêne, is located near to the center of Saint-Julien-de-Concelles. The lake supports sailing, fishing, various sports and attracts walkers and nature lovers.[citation needed]
