While resting, toss the pota- toes, shallots and garlic in the remaining salt and pepper. Toss in the hot pan to roast the outsides about 4 minutes. Turn off heat and set aside. Remove from heat, add wine to deglaze. Return to heat for 1 minute while stirring to collect all pan drippings. Rub the rosemary, chervil and thyme on the leg of lamb.
