Comments from Google on new gTLDs

"Will a new TLD web address automatically be favoured by Google over a .com equivalent? Quite simply, yes it will." This question was answered by a back-end registry promoting and selling new generic Top-Level Domains.

Matt Cutts, head of the webspam team at Google seems to have a different answer to this question and came back responding a "Sorry, but that's just not true".

If I can understand the answer of Matt Cutts, I don't think the initial question was asked the correct way so I asked him in more simple words:

My question:
"If I should launch a web site in 2013 (or later when the .wine registry is launched) which content is about wine: would google favor the one with a .wine extension or the one with a .com extension?"

Will Matt answer this question? I will keep you posted. :-)
