Andreas’ top Pinot Noir is, provocatively, called: “Pinot Noir.” You will, however, find both an “S” and an “N” version, similar to Lapierre’s traditional Morgon bottling. And the meaning is the same: the “S” has a small amount of sulfur, the “N” has none. Both wines are sourced from 35-year-old Pinot Noir vines on a single, limestone-rich hill/mountain; a single terrace here with low yields, around 35-40 hl/ha.  I nearly always prefer the “S” bottling (with only 25ppm total, it hardly has much), which shows, to me, a more unified, seamless elegance, with beautiful red berry fruit woven into earth and mineral. There is a touch of sauvage, a Gevrey-like earth and spice. Stylistically (I’d guess there are 37 people for whom this comment will be relevant), I find Durst’s top Pinot to be somewhere between Enderle & Moll and Wasenhaus.
