The estate is located in the municipality of Léognan in the area Pessac-Léognan in Graves (Bordeaux). The property was already founded in 1234 by Ramon Carbonnieux. In 1740 he was appointed by the Benedictines accepted. According to legend, these allegedly managed to sell their white wine to the Turkish court as "mineral water". From later US President Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), was visited during his stay as ambassador to France (1785-1789) and described as one of the best wineries. The estate was bought in 1956 by the Algerian immigrant family Perrin, who restored it and re-planted the vineyards. From 1982 to 2008, it was led by Anthony Perrin (+2008), who was instrumental in the formation of Pessac-Léognan as its own appellation. Since his death, the estate is managed by his sons Eric and Philibert Perrin.

Both white wine and red wine are classified as "Cru Classé". The vineyards cover 92 hectares, which are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, and the white varieties Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Sémillon and Muscadelle. The long-lived white wine is matured for three months in 100% new oak barrels. The second white wine is called "Château La Tour-Léognan". The red wine is produced in the typical Graves style. The family also includes the Château Bois-Martin, also located in Pessac-Léognan, Château Haut-Vigneau, Château La Tour-Léognan, Château Le Sartre and Château Lafont-Menaut.
