The estate is located in the municipality of Léognan in the area Pessac-Léognan
(Bordeaux). The property was already founded in 1234 by Ramon Carbonnieux. In 1740 he was appointed by the Benedictines

(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.
